Middle school students explore electronics, computers, and programming by building projects with Arduino, an open-source electronics prototyping platform (http://www.arduino.cc).
Projects include LED Dice, a binary counter, a Morse code translator, a lie detector, and a motion-sensing alarm.
Consistent with the Arduino philosophy of learning by tinkering and rapid prototyping, students also develop their own projects by interfacing "electronic junk" to Arduino circuit boards.
