This class will describe how to use various simple types of sensor with Arduino microcontrollers, using TinkerCAD premade circuit/coded examples. It will cover Digital and Analog sensors, some ways to manage the input and see the output. Some programs are coded using block coding like Scratch and some are in text (C++) but should be not too difficult to follow. The free TinkerCAD simulator makes it easy and quick to build and try ideas. Premade circuits offer examples you can look at and modify.
Prerequisites: Some familiarity with Arduino and simple coding will be useful – you do not have to be an expert. Nova Labs class Arduino 101 is enough.
Ages: Suggested teen to adult.
• TinkerCAD is a web-based simulator, you do not have to download anything. You do have to make an account with a login. After you are logged in the circuits is below the 3D CAD.
