Arduino Uno

This session builds on Arduino Level 1 to introduce our crafting and cars kit. Discover how Uno can be linked into a car chassis, along with motors and sensors, to enable your students to build self-driving cars. We also look at creating wearables using LilyPad Arduinos and conductive thread. This 1/2 day professional development activity is designed for classroom teachers in grades 7+ who have attended Arduino - Level 1 and are looking to do slightly more advanced Arduino circuits.…

micro:bit

Join Kids Code Jeunesse (KCJ) for an evening of hands-on learning with code on Nov. 14! During this workshop, we will introduce some of the main concepts of computational thinking as they apply to coding and hardware, like the micro:bit. A micro:bit is a small programmable computer - a single board, just larger than a matchbox - that primes students to explore the rich potential of physical computing. In addition to getting familiar with the micro:bit and it’s online editor, MakeCode, we will make critical connections between process,…

Ozobot

Ozobot can be used in two different ways. The first is as a line-tracking robot that responds to black, red, blue, and green colour codes to perform a variety of moves like turning, switching paths, and doing spins. Ozobot can also be programmed using a tiered block-based programming language that is similar to Scratch. Ozo can follow paths, sense obstacles, play a song, and put on a light show.  This 1/2 day professional development activity is designed for Grade 3-4…

Edison

Edison is a versatile bot that opens up students’ imagination. Students can make use of Edison’s Lego-compatible pegs and a handful of sensors to solve a variety of problems. Edison can respond to barcodes to perform various predefined tasks or be programmed using a computer using one of a few different languages. We focus on using EdScratch, a block-based programming language that looks and feels like Scratch, but is customized for Edison. This 1/2 day professional development activity is designed…
