** This class has been canceled due to instructor illness.**

 

Have you ever wondered how your house maintains the temperature you set on the thermostat? How does the equipment possibly know what the current temperature is and when to turn on to maintain a specific temperature? Or what about your freezer? How does it make sure that your ice cream doesn’t melt?

We are going to be using the temperature sensors that come with the library’s Arduino kits to explore how we can use this data, combine it with code and cause things to happen depending on what the temperature is. No coding or Arduino experience needed. For ages 10+.

Low-cost microcontrollers, such as the $25 Arduino, have revolutionized the way we connect the real and virtual worlds. The credit-card sized Arduino board can be used in robotics, to control sensors, or to create wearable technology. Arduino’s are used in many greenhouses to help monitor and regulate conditions such as temperature and humidity.
