March 2 @ 11:55 am - March 14 @ 12:55 am
The Arduino Problem Solvers event is an opportunity for students to use the engineering design process to arrive at solutions to everyday issues. Students will identify issues related to: conservation, health and safety, accessibility, or any other similar area, and will use Arduino micro-computers along with electrical components like LED lights, sensors, actuators, and servo-motors to design and test solutions. Example solutions may include: smart lights, smart blinds, motion sensor lights, alarms, signals, soil sensors, smart irrigation systems and much more.
The event is only open to grade 7 and 8 students of Herbert H. Carnegie Public School. Student teams will meet regularly throughout the month of March to research, plan, design, build and test their innovations. The broader community can celebrate the learning and accomplishments of our teams by following our progress on social media (Twitter: @CarnegieYRDSB #NEM2020)
Participants will have the opportunity to learn valuable skills for the careers of the future (design, coding, electricity, robotics, and problem solving to name a few), while also using and refining collaboration skills in a diverse, equitable and inclusive environment.
