About This Course
This course will teach you the basics of Computational thinking and programming using the Arduino Uno microcontroller. An Arduino is programmed using a subset of the C++ computer language that also likely drives your computer's operating system, your favourite game, and the software controlling fighter jets! Learning this language will make picking up other languages easier and more straightforward in the future.
To complete this course, you will need access to an Arduino Ninjas Beginner Kit. You can obtain these by contacting the University of South Australia's Education Futures Outreach team at EDC-Enquiries@unisa.edu.au. This kit contains an Arduino Uno compatible board, breadboard and all the components that you will need to complete the tasks and challenges in this course. You can add to this kit later by purchasing other components and sensors from Jaycar or other electonics suppliers.
