The 1st lesson most budding engineers learn is how to take something apart and see how it works. That is the approach we take to coding in this class. Students will be presented with code examples, components and in-depth walkthroughs to guarantee early success. Example projects include a Countdown LED and Alarm, Four Note Piano, Multi-Glow Colored Lamp, Coin Toss, Dice Roll, Reaction Timer, Simon Says and many others. We will dissect how the system works and from there the student can modify and expand as far as their creativity will allow. Maker Board is a tiny, simple computer that you can learn to program in minutes. It was developed in Kentucky by our friends at Let'sStartCoding.com. It is designed as a rst step to bridge between the real world and code. The code you develop is compatible with the widely used Arduino architecture so there are many opportunities to use the lessons learned in your home projects. After the week is over, you can buy your own Maker Board kit so the learning can continue at home.
