The AT&T and Junior Achievement Arduino program introduces students to electronics, embedded systems, and programming using the fun and easy-to-learn Arduino platform. Instructors guide students through experiments ranging from the basics of wiring components on a breadboard, to writing complex programs which read sensors and control various output devices. Students are introduced to potential uses for the technologies, and are encouraged to collaborate at home and at school to invent new applications.
The Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software. It is intended for artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments.
AT&T and Junior Achievement offer these courses to foster interest in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math in young men and women in the United States.
