3 Days ICTSIG Junior Digital Class (December 2017)

S.T.E.M fun learning Basic: Prototyping Arduino Smart Car using Microduino

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 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. Microduino mCookie is powerful, small, LEGO┬«-compatible and also magnetically stackable. 

Student will also explore programming with Arduino software platform that is based on C programming language. With Arduino integrated development environment (IDE) for Microduino that allows for programming of the Arduino open source hardware platform, students will explore new libraries and programming syntax for managing sensors and trinkets connected to Microduino mCookie modules. 

On the first day, student will learn the basics of circuitry, basics of Arduino software platform, electronic controller, power source, line finder sensor, infrared sensor, sound sensor (microphone), buzzer trinket, colour LED trinket and electric motor trinket. Students will try different types of sensors and trinkets configurations and different control logics and operation parameters to understand how sensor and output trinket works. 

On the second day, student will learn intermediate level circuitry, intermediate level of Arduino software platform, electronic controller, power source, line finder sensor, infrared sensor, sound sensor (microphone), buzzer trinket, colour LED trinket and electric motor trinket to construct a remote control smart car prototype. Students will try different types of sensors and trinkets configurations and different control logics and operation parameters to modify the remote control smart car prototype for different types of real world application. 

On the third day, student will learn advance level circuitry, advance level of Arduino software platform, electronic controller, power source, line finder sensor, infrared sensor, sound sensor (microphone), buzzer trinket, colour LED trinket and electric motor trinket to construct an autonomous smart car prototype. Students will try different types of sensors and trinkets configurations and different control logics and operation parameters to modify the autonomous control smart car prototype for different types of real world application.
