Workshop: Arduino for Educators

Do you want to teach computer programming but want an experience that involves more than just what is on a screen?

With an Arduino device, you can teach the concepts of computer programming while building interactive and engaging projects that involve lights, buttons, motors, sounds, and sensors.

In this workshop, educators will learn how to teach key programming concepts such as variables, control flow, and computational logic using Arduino devices and other hardware components.
