Arduino is the easiest platform to learn digital making. However, many students, as well as the teachers, still find it is difficult to get started and get familiar with Arduino. This could due to two reasons:
- Most of the students and teachers do not have knowledge in either electronics or coding or both;
- Most of the beginner’s guide and sample codes are developed by the technical persons who do not understand the pains of the non-technical people.
This product is developed by a non-technical person aims to solve the problem for the beginners who want to learn Arduino and digital making for the first time. The learning material is intentionally designed to allow the beginners to see the results (programming output) immediately, get excited then follow by the superficial explanation on how things work.
1. Copy the codes given blindly.
2. Upload the code to the board. See the result immediately, get excited.
3. Codes are explained line by line using the layman language.
4. Learn extra electronics knowledge and coding syntax if you want.
This product consists of 17 interesting projects that cover 7 fundamental topics in digital making.
