After School Club

Arduino Creations

Arduino Creations Club is one of TEA’s newest club offerings for Fall‘19!

In this offering, participants will learn Arduino, which is an open-source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. It’s intended for anyone making interactive projects, and features hardware components that are very affordable, which allows builders to create whatever they can imagine.

Arduino senses the environment by receiving inputs from many sensors, and affects its surroundings by controlling lights, motors, speakers, and other devices. Participants will tell their Arduino motherboards what to do by writing code in the Arduino programming language and by utilizing the Arduino development environment.
