LASER-TEC AT IRSC HOSTS CODING BOOT CAMP FOR STUDENTS 12-17
Learn how to use the Arduino Microcontroller to automate the world!

Students age 12 and 17 have the opportunity to learn about coding and to explore the use of the Arduino microcontroller to automate the world around them in their experience at the Coding with Arduino Boot Camp hosted by LASER-TEC at Indian River State College. The Arduino Boot Camp starts Wednesday, August 29, and features a special focus on the use of wireless technologies.

Arduino Boot Camp students have the opportunity to draft, design, and build as they program a light emitting diode (LED) matrix and then use radio-frequency identification (RFID) to send and receive data to the LED with their own RFID controlled-access entry. Additionally students will add Bluetooth and wireless capabilities to their Arduino microcontroller and learn about the speed of sound and how sonar is used to measure distance. Boot Camp activities culminate in a final project where students build their own Arduino from scratch.

The Coding with Arduino Boot Camp takes place on Wednesday evenings from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. from August 29 through October 10 in Y-208 on the IRSC Main Campus at 3209 Virginia Avenue in Fort Pierce at the Brown Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship. Cost for the Boot Camp is $225 and includes a customized, complimentary kit valued at $100, which boot-camp participants take home.
