Microcontrollers are integrated circuits (IC) chips that are able to process input and control machines and devices based on their written program. In our current lifestyle, we can find Microcontrollers used in devices such as rice cookers, washing machines, remote controls, etc.
In this workshop, participants will get to understand the different components of a development board used for prototyping. They will also get to exposed to the C++ programming language and write simple programs using Arduino's Integrated Development Environment (IDE). They will build circuitry on a breadboard using simple components such as buzzer, light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and light dependent resistor (LDR). Mini projects will also be given during the session to enhance participants' understanding of the various components and programming skills taught in the workshop.
Objectives: DC Circuits (Potential divider circuit)
