Hands on Arduino and Snap Circuit® Workshop for beginners, sponsored by the IEEE North NJ Section, IEEE Young Professionals and WIE. Our goal is to introduce middle school and high school students to electronic devices and basic circuit theory. Snap Circuits® makes learning electronics fun and easy. The components are mounted on a plastic module, labeled clearly with the actual circuit symbols and snap together easily to form circuits. In the projects we will learn to control the circuit with the Arduino microcontroller.
