Arduino and Processing

arduinoSTEM-LOGO-FINAL processing

Introduction:

The module is used with senior year students undertaking the C2C challenges. It starts at a very basic level and quickly develops skills with sample code to show how micro controllers such as the arduino can be used to complete fairly complex tasks.

You will need laptop with Arduino and Processing software installed. Both software will work on either Mac or PC but you will need to have admin rights to install.
