Introduction to Arduinos

Arduino Lesson 2 page addendum-1The students will see an animated video that gives an overview a of how the
U.S. electrical grid is organized and how power gets to customers. Next , they will make a human electrical circuit. Finally, students will be put into several small groups receiving printed instructions on how to create a traffic light using Arduino kits. Students will gain a basic understanding of how electricity is created and delivered to the consumer.

Power Grid with Squishy Circuits

Students will learn about the Power Grid and how it is used to produce electricity to their house. They will learn the different components of the grid and then manipulate the grid with TCIPG. Once the students learn how the grid works, they will build a power grid with their partner with squishy circuits, batteries and LED Lights.
