Engaging Students in the Engineering Process Using Sensors
A professional workshop for grades 6-12 educators
An Approved Course for MA DESE’s Accelerating Science: Open Access Professional Learning
Build your skills and confidence to incorporate digital technology and computational thinking into engineering design portions of your curriculum, even with no prior coding experience! Explore coding and engineering design concepts through fun, engaging, hands-on projects using the Arduino Electronics Platform!
Delve into a variety of investigations that you can use to explore using Arduino Sensors with your students. Model how to engage students with hands-on lessons that develop an understanding of the engineering design process, including using engineering design drawings and bread boards, as we explore the concepts of current, voltage, and digital logic as well as the fundamentals of programming. Participate in a design challenge you would like to incorporate into your own curriculum. Receive an Arduino kit to start using these materials and investigations in your classroom!
This professional learning opportunity is designed for Arduino beginners and intermediate users. Other sensors can be used along with the products that can be created with the kits.
