Devoxx4Kids is offering workshops for kids 6th grade and older to learn the basics of the Internet of Things in Mountain View, California on Sunday, May 4th. Register your child now for the morning or afternoon session!
These workshops will cover the basic concepts applied for interfacing the real world to the digital world, like sensors and controllers, circuits, voltage, current, analog and digital signals. Kids will learn via hands-on activities using the Arduino Uno, an open-source micro-controller. It can control simple components like switches, LEDs, and light sensors. Arduino kits will be provided for hands-on experience in a shared setting.
The Internet of Things is growing each day. Objects from everyday life, like water heaters, energy meters, and weather stations are now connecting to each other and people, computers and the Internet. Now is the time for your child to learn about this exciting area!
