Approximately 30 people attended the Arduino/Microcontroller workshop for Educators workshop held on August 3rd and 4th at IT-oLogy. The majority of attendees were educators, but students and local IT professionals also participated. The purpose of the workshop was to train educators and other IT leaders on the skills needed to understand and teach basic microcontroller programming as well as the circuits in the Sparkfun Inventor’s Kit (SIK). This content is important because it teaches basic engineering principles vital in education. It will now be taught and implemented in a classroom environment in high schools, middle schools and even elementary schools. Linz Craig, Educational Outreach Coordinator for Sparkfun Electronics, conducted both workshops and did an outstanding job.
This was a fun lab! Christine
