Arduino Zero to Hero

Arduino is an open-source microcontroller used for building electronics projects. Since it arrived on the scent, Arduino completely revolutionized DIY electronics, making it possible for artists, teenagers and hobbyists to create a vast array of projects which interact with people and the environment.

This course is a product of my 5 years of playing and teaching with Arduino's. The learning sequence of

Sections 1-3 introduce Arduino and build student confidence by first learning how to just build circuits and afterwards how to write programs.

Section 4: teaches the fundamentals of analog circuits and applies those to sound sensors, temperature sensors, light mixers and musical instruments.

Section 5: takes on digital circuits, starting with button inputs being used to create sound effects, memory games, guessing games with a 7 segment display and measure human reaction time.

Section 6: is all about installing and using sensor libraries with Gyro Accelerometer Circuits and Remote Control Circuits.

Section 7: Wraps up the course with some spectacular visualizations of sensor outputs using a software called Processing.

Sanjin combines his passion for teaching and education with an in-depth understanding of a vast array of technologies. He graduated in 2007 from The Australian National University, majoring in Robotics and Computer Vision. He has a unique ability to adapt various engineering concepts into hands on classroom activities and teach everything from Scratch, Python, Arduino to Raspberry Pi to very young audiences. His role with Techxellent centres around doing this on a larger scale in an easy to follow ‘progression model’ which imbues students with a new mindset required for innovation and analytical thinking. In 2016 his goal is to raise the bar in student engagement with programming and robotics by enabling students to communicate with computers much like they do with their friends— using facial expressions and hand gestures.
