Arduino'Breadboarding and C++ coding workshop for high school students - years 7-12
ECU's School of Science: Computing and Security invite high school students to join us for a day of coding Arduino and attaching lights, motors, and buzzers. We have a series of Duinotech Learning Kits that provide the user with endless opportunities to use software and hardware to prototype, develop, design, and create.
The day will start with learning the basics of C++, the Arduino, and Electronics, followed by looking at the various projects and working through them. Students may bring their own laptops but we prefer to use our computers which have the appropriate software already on them.

8:45 - Registrations, logging onto computers
9:00 - Workshop 1 - Arduino platform, libraries, tab files C++, board testing
10:00 - break
