Electronics and programming with Arduino

Prototyping ideas with sensors and electronic devices
Basics of robotics
Interactive installations

Arduino is the most popular microcontroller in the world - and for obvious reasons: this open-source platform is optimal for various projects ranging from art, design and maker activities to industrial-level product and service prototypes. On the Mehackit course the students get to experiment with electronic sound, light installations, hacking hardware and movement. Finished projects from the course include Rube Goldberg machines, drawing bots and a robotic ice cream truck. Join the fun and find out what kind of inventions your students will come up with!
