The program will start with a discussion of the design process, sourcing parts, datasheets and creating schematics, and will be followed by an introduction to Arduino. The second day will cover soldering, a brief discussion of SparkFun’s Lilypad with an optional take-home activity, solder stenciling, and an introduction to processing. On day three, students will work with Eagle PCB layout software and cover more Arduino programming concepts. Day four will be dedicated to learning about GPS and wireless.
On the final day of the event, SparkFun will provide a whole day of support for independent projects. After all, the Summer Semester is about giving students the tools they need to execute their ideas. Instructors will make sure students get exposure to a wide variety of concepts and plenty of time to discuss design details with SparkFun’s engineers.
SparkFun is dedicated to sharing ingenuity and hopes the Summer Semester will provide a wide range of basic skills to give students the confidence to pursue their own electronics projects.
