Thursdays 3:45 – 5:15
January 30 – March 19
Orange Lab, Stevensville Middle School
Teacher: Steve Decker
In this class students will learn how to control projects with the Arduino microcontroller. These tiny computers are set up to take information from the world, make decisions, and control actions in the world.
Projects will start at a very basic level. While experience is always helpful it is not required for this class. Curiosity and enthusiasm, however, are very important, as is the willingness to learn from mistakes.
Each student will select and create their own personal project with guidance from the teacher. Projects might include robots, things that move, costumes, props, or flashy displays.
Level: Grade 6 and above, preferably with some computer experience or good math/science skills.
Cost: $80 for 8 classes – scholarships are available (snacks included)
Registration can also be done in person at the Stevensville Public Schools district office (in the high school building) or by phone/email:
Payment can be made online or by check made out to Coding for Kids and sent to the district office at 300 Park Ave, Stevensville, MT 59870.
The spot will be held for 5 days post registration while waiting for payment – after that the seat will be reopened for other students.
