Day 44 – Arduino

Engineering Physics – Students started using Arduinos today. There was some puzzlement and headscratching, but also some very pleased kids. One student had the biggest smile I think I’ve ever seen on the student. She was so proud and happy to create a circuit where LED’s flashed on and off. I think it was the idea that they accomplished something concrete yet totally foreign to them. That “Holy sh%t, I actually did it!” kind of feeling.
