Circuits

Have you been late to work because your older camper secretly stole your clock radio to take it apart? Circuits could be the perfect option! The program Arduino exposes Senior campers to breadboards, circuits, and resistors to help them accomplish a vast array of amazing projects using high level programming such as JAVA. By using circuits and motors, campers will be able to create projects such as radios, Morse code translator, clocks, and more! This is not for beginners and requires experience in JAVA or similar languages.

  • Requirements: Ability to work in pairs. One session of Programming AND Robotics at TIC or comparable. Algebra and similar math experience helpful.
  • Level: Advanced (Seniors: Rising 6th to 10th grade only)
  • Take home: Photos and/or video of circuits with links to upload programs developed.
  • This technology option is NOT available at the VA-Fairfax site.
