This little booklet, written by Prof. Jan Borchers, introduces you to using an Arduino. It covers the latest beginner-friendly board, the Arduino Uno R3, and the latest version of the Arduino IDE, 1.0.3. It comes with shopping tips and a SparkFun online wish list to get the parts you’ll need.
Very nice set of lessons for beginners. Has text and also videos.
S4A is a Scratch modification that supports simple programming of the Arduino open source hardware platform. It provides new blocks for managing sensors and actuators connected to Arduino. There is also a sensor report board similar to the PicoBoard.
It has been created to attract people to the programming world. The goal is also to provide a high level interface to Arduino programmers with functionalities such as interacting with a set of boards through user events.
Modkit makes microcontrollers easy for kids and anyone else
A Website from the robots folks that talks about Arduino projects for robotics including using Arduinos with Lego Mindstorms
Lots of good info on this site!
When working with Arduino circuits, students need a way to read resistor color bands. This is a great way to learn!
“This article should acquaint you with basic Arduino programming and show you how to write programs that interact with objects in the real world”
The book, 30 Arduino Projects for the Evil Genius, is excellent and the code used in the book is available from this page.
Both of these pages list links to projects your students can do as they learn about Arduinos.
An electronics course that uses the Arduino. From the site:
“My main reason for centering my electronics course on the Arduino is that today more and more of our electronic devices are incorporating some sort of computer chip and this will allow us to better model a whole branch of electronics. Additionally students will be exposed to some programming, which is a very useful skill”
