Students ages 12 to 17 have the unique and unparalleled opportunity to learn about wireless technologies at the upcoming Coding with Arduino Bootcamp hosted by LASER-TEC at Indian River State College (IRSC). The Arduino Bootcamp starts January 22 and meets weekly through February 26.
Arduino Bootcamp students will turn their hobby into a high-demand skill set as they expand their knowledge of computer coding and electronic circuits. Under the guidance of educators who are well-versed in electronics, programming and inquiry-based education, students will utilize a light emitting diode (LED) matrix to create personalized messages, send commands, and receive both digital and audible commands. Additionally students will learn how television remotes work, how to use an Arduino to determine if plants have enough water, how to program a clock, and more.
The Coding with Arduino Bootcamp takes place on Wednesday evenings from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. from January 22 through February 26 in the Brown Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship on the IRSC Main Campus at 3209 Virginia Avenue in Fort Pierce. Cost for the Bootcamp is $225 and includes a customized, complimentary kit valued at $100, which participants take home.
