June 28-July 2 (Online registration closes June 13. Call 303-492-7188 to register after this date.)
Live Class Time: 1-3pm MDT
This hands-on virtual camp is an introduction to physical computing using the popular Arduino microcontroller platform. Learn how to put together simple electronic circuits and write programs (Arduino "sketches") to create projects that light up, move and make sound. We’ll be using the Seeed Studio Grove Beginner Kit for Arduino which is very easy to use while also being expandable and flexible for future projects. No experience necessary.
All virtual programs require a computer, tablet or smartphone with Zoom capability. Please ensure that the latest version of Zoom is installed on the device your child will be using. Note: School-issued Chromebooks have a number of restrictions that may cause accessibility issues.
Technology required for this camp:
- Computer with a USB Port, functioning camera and microphone
- Computer must be running Windows, MacOS or Linux
- Optional (but very helpful): External monitor so participant can run Zoom on one display and the Arduino development tools on the other.
Materials kit provided by Science Discovery:*
- Grove Beginner Kit for Arduino
- SG90 9G Servo Motor
- RGB LED and 3 resistors Kit
- 400 Points Solderless Breadboard

*The above materials kit will be available for curbside pick-up at the SEEC building, Lot 556 (map linked) the week prior to the camp beginning. Details will be communicated via email approximately 10 days prior to the start of camp. If you are in need of having your materials kit mailed via USPS, you must select the shipping option when registering. Note: Science Discovery is unable to ship internationally. Materials kits provided by Science Discovery will be mailed 2-weeks prior to the camp start date. If you are registering within 2-weeks of the start date of this camp, you will be required to pick up your materials kit, as Science Discovery is not able to expedite shipping.
