  • What is science? What is the nature of science? – Inquiry, Investigation, Experimentation…
    But, we’re past the ages of using rulers, stop watches, and old school techniques to investigate our world. How are real scientists doing it?
  • Plug it in. FTDI is Serial buffer, 5V, GND, reset.
    40-50 miliAmps source
    3.3V system. 9 pins broken out. PWM and analogs. You can reconfigure analog ins to be outputs.
  • Talk about different board types
  • Talk about different board types
  • I’m not sure if this one works. It did not work on the Danger Shields that we had in the classroom. 
  • This is a new learning platform for Arduino to be released in the next few months. It integrates 5 white LEDs, an RGB LED, a microphone, light sensor, temp sensor, slider, switch, button, and two general purpose I/O ports.
  • Transcript

    • 1. http://sfe.io/r72 Jeff Branson Education Outreach Coordinator Email: jeff.branson@sparkfun.com Derek Runberg Curriculum Curator Email: derek.runberg@sparkfun.com @sparkfun #nsta14
    • 2. Pause… Before we move any further, let’s make sure that we all know each other in this room? Please introduce yourself to the person(s) sitting in your general vicinity. Tell them a few things about yourself, maybe: – where you’re from – what you teach – why you’re here – what you hope to get out of this….
    • 3. About Us At SparkFun, our focus is all about creation, innovation, and sharing information. Open Source Hardware is at the core of our business. We emphasize researching, re- mixing, adapting, making improvements, and sharing with the world!
    • 4. “ Teacher s t hat make… Make gr eat t eacher s” -Anonymous
    • 5. Arduino / Microcontrollers a.k.a. Physical Computing “Arduino is a tool for making computers that can sense and control more of the physical world than your desktop computer.” A micro-controller is essentially a brain – or, think of a bunch of programmable “elves…” It is the guts of something like Vernier, Pasco, or Fourier
    • 6. What can this thing do? Remember, think programmable “elves” We can use this to: - Turn on lights - Interface cameras (take photos) - Log sensor data (temp, pressure, humidity, light…) - Communicate with your PC and the internet (a.k.a. Internet of Things) - Take Science Fair to the next level…
    • 7. How it works? 01010011 01110000 01100001 01110010 01101011 01000110 01110101 01101110 SERIAL DATA @ 9600 baud
    • 8. Hardware Configurations / Connections What’s a Pin? 14 general digital input / output pins 6 analog input pins (Pins A0 – A5) Nitty Gritty: Powered off anything from 7 – 15V DC Voltage Regulator provides 5V and 3.3V Standard TTL logic – 5V is HIGH, and 0V is LOW.
    • 9. Getting started • Download Arduino from: www.arduino.cc/download • Follow their directions on installation.
    • 10. Startup Arduino IDE • Double-click on either the Arduino Icon or wherever you installed (saved) the Arduino program.
    • 11. Plug in your RedBoard (Arduino)
    • 12. Lesson #0 – Setting up Arduino 1.Setup Board –Arduino Uno 1.Setup COM Port –PC – Highest COM # –Mac – /dev/tty.usbserial-A####xXx
    • 13. Tools  Board  Arduino Uno Setup Board
    • 14. Tools  Serial Port Setup COM Port PC – Highest COM # Mac – /dev/tty.usbserial- A####xxx
    • 15. Anatomy of code General syntax: – Case-sensitive – Semi-colons – Curly-brackets void functionName()
    • 16. Just the basics Turning an LED on and off…
    • 17. Open Challenges 1) Create a heartbeat – a realistic one! 2) What is the fastest blink that your eye can detect? What is the frequency of this blink? Now, move the LED back and forth – do you see a “trail”? What are some interesting scientific investigations you can explore with this? 1) What about making a timer?? – blink the LED for 10 seconds and then stop! 2) What other ideas?
    • 18. Introducing the Danger Shield What’s a Shield?
    • 19. Sensing – Slider – AnalogRead(A0)
    • 20. Serial Monitor 01010011 01110000 01100001 01110010 01101011 01000110 01110101 01101110 SERIAL DATA @ 9600 baud
    • 21. Sensing – Light – AnalogRead(A3)
    • 22. Sensing – Temp – AnalogRead(A4) This sensor: TMP36 has a sensitivity of 10 mV / °C = 100°C / V and is 750 mV at 25 °C.
    • 23. Converting between ADC value to voltage?
    • 24. Pre-created example programs
    • 25. Preview of Digital SandBox Slider / PotentiometerSwitch Motor / Speaker Out Push Button Microphone Light Sensor Temp Sensor LED Array RGB LED Arduino
    • 26. Now what? • Interested in professional development?
