Learn the basics of Arduino microcontroller boards! Make use of sensors, lights, motors, and other components to create autonomous, interactive projects that engage your students in problem-solving using circuits.
This 1/2 day professional development activity is designed for classroom teachers in grades 7 & 8 but any teacher looking to introduce Arduino into their class will find this session useful. The opportunity is open only to teachers of the Saskatoon Public School Division, Greater Saskatoon Catholic School Division, Prairie Spirit School Division, and Saskatoon Tribal Council.
During the in-service classroom kits and curricular activities will be introduced to teachers for use in their classrooms. Kits will then be made available to teachers who have received this training.
