School Projects with Arduino Brains
Learn how STEAMLabs has brought high tech maker education into the classroom by having students design a museum exhibit to teach about the power system. The students used 21st century skills to create a project combining Arduino coding on a Particle board, 3D printing, web design and electronics.
The model downloads live xml power production data and visualizes the mix from the different sources over time with a 3D-printed LED display. A web interface allows the visitor to update the LEDs to view how the mix changes over time.
By building this model and using it to teach adults and kids about the power system, the kids truly became confident experts on this topic.
