Students will explore technology used in space through the Arduino tool. They will build circuits to blink an LED and to measure temperature, pressure and altitude. The basics of programming in C++ will be introduced using the Arduino IDE (Integrated Development Environment) software.
Students will learn to
- Improve analytical skills
- Develop understanding of a programming language
- Develop understanding of building circuits
- Understand how sensors can be used to collect data
- Improve teamwork skills
