If you are interested in STEM education, making, the Internet of Things, then the Arduino is probably the best place to start. The Arduino is a tool for makers. Use it to create toys, home automation applications, self-driving cars, sound and light shows. The Arduino opens up a rich world of creativity for people of any age.
If you thought that learning the Arduino is hard, you are not alone. The Arduino is not a single thing. To learn how to use the Arduino, you need to learn a few things about electronics and programming. You also need to think about problem solving, problem decomposition is synthesis.
This learning has to start somewhere, and sometime.
Well, you are in luck!
You can start your learning right now, right here!
I have created this free introductory course to the Arduino for anyone interested in this amazing tool, but was confused, and perhaps even a little scared, about all the different options that are available today.
In this course, I offer a clear path to getting started, and from there, to mastery.
Learn about what is the Arduino, where and why it was created, and it's most important features.
Go on to learn about the what you can do with the Arduino, and how it works with other "things".
In this course, you will even take your first few steps in programming it. If you have never done any programming before, don't worry, we have your back.
So, no need to wait any longer. Jump right in and start learning :-)
