Cool Makers Projects using the Arduino and Raspberry Pi Micro-controllers

Prerequisites: Advanced Programming for the Arduino and Raspberry Pi

Now that you know how to program and control your Arduino and Raspberry PI it’s time to do some really cool projects and explore the capabilities of these micro-controllers.

The following projects will be explored:

  1. Ethernet Shields and Programming
  2. Communicating with Webservers
  3. XBee shields
  4. Bluetooth Low Energy shields (BLE)
  5. An amazing high altitude balloon project. Temperature sensors, data logging, GPS tracking, radio communication and cameras.

Each class will cover an exciting shield project to explore the unique capabilities of each shield and controller. This course has 8 classes and are typically 1 hour long. However, due to all the cool new technologies, resources and information that is constantly emerging, students are encouraged to ask questions & share new information, and because the instructor thinks these topics are too cool, expect many 1 hour classes to go over.

When students sign up for the course they will receive a link with the parts/book needed for the course. These parts will include items such as micro-controllers, LEDS, resistors, leads and breadboard. Additionally, this course will use shields that you may not have but should be in every makers tool box. Budget about $100 for this course for shields, parts and material. You will be able to reuse most components on other cool projects. Budget about $25 for the book(s).
