Microcontrollers for the Classroom: Have you heard about microcontrollers (Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Makey-Makey) but don't know what they do or which one is appropriate for your classroom? Join staff from the Champaign Urbana Community Fab Lab and Illinois Computing Educators to see a variety of microcontrollers in action and to build your own adorable Arduino powered pom-pom robot. In this workshop, you will learn to interface a servo motor with an Arduino and change the computer code to make it move. Over the course of the workshop, you will hear about the "Arduino Process," meet other teachers who are interested in learning more about microcontrollers, and discuss ideas for scaling activities, and the cost of components.
