Makeathon with Arduino
An Arduino is an embedded system the size of a credit card. Arduino provides a code editor, called the Arduino IDE, for writing code and uploading it to your board.
This makeathon event provides a fun way to get students to create real-life solutions using embedded systems within a short period of time. This change in their conventional learning and working builds their confidence and encourages self-learning.
12 years and above
What do you need to bring
Own laptop (Windows or Mac) with power supply and mouse.
Drinking water and light snack, if required.
Students complete projects using the Arduino IDE and board. They will learn programming concepts (such as variables, operators, conditionals) and the embedded system (analogue and digital I/Os, sensors, actuators).
Using the Design Thinking methodology, students turn their ideas into prototypes that solve real-life challenges.The makeathon concludes with the students pitching their ideas to their peers, obtaining valuable feedback and recognition for their efforts.
