What's Included

In this course we will delve into the realms of programming, electronics and mechanical engineering to develop mechanical/electrical systems (mechatronics). Student will build circuits and use sensors to serve as inputs to an arduino controller which can be used to control motors, lights, servos, electronic valves and other devices to make a creation of their own design. Prior to building these devices, students will be given training in relevant areas of programming, electronics and mechanical systems. Participants will come away with and understanding of basic electronics (current, resistance, diodes, integrated circuits), basic programming skills, an understanding of controller hardware, digital and analog ports, pwm and a new-found or deeper enjoyment of mechanical and electrical engineering and computer science.
