Introduction to Physical Computing and Software Development - Explore Microduino basics to build up their familiarity with the Microduino modules, sensors and trinkets and build a solution for a day-to-day problem


SYNOPSIS

Ministry of Education Malaysia (MOE) and Malaysia Development Economic Corporation Sdn Bhd (MDEC) launched Science Technology Engineering Mathematics or STEM education initiatives to address the reducing number of students interested in Science studies. IEM being the forefront in promoting and advancement of the science and profession of engineering is taking up the challenge to deliver higher quality STEM activities for school students in the area of physical computing, software development and engineering design.

In this Junior Digital Class, students will first be introduced to STEM education. Then students will be introduced to physical computing and explore Microduino basics to build up their familiarity with the Microduino mCookie modules, sensors and trinkets. Microduino mCookie is Arduino-compatible open source electronic hardware for makers, designers, engineers, students and curious tinkerers of all ages. Next, students will assemble a prototype using Microduino mCookie and LEGO®-compatible building blocks. Students will then be introduced to Mixly, a software visual programming language created suitable as a STEM education tools. With Mixly students will program the software for the prototype they have assembled. Students will then finally present their prototype and the functionality.

Student will learn the basics of circuitry, electronic controller, power source, mechanical sensor (switch), light sensor, buzzer output trinket and colour LED output trinket to construct a solution for a day-to-day problem.
