Arduino Animatronics
Penny Angelo

8th-grade students in Ms. Wolff’s class learned all about physical computing. They learned how circuits, programming, and 3D printing come together. Their final project involved the design and 3D printing of an object they were interested in creating. Using an Arduino board, which is essentially a programmable microcontroller, students wired their circuits and programmed the board so they can power lights and motors. They programmed the board using a simplified version of the C/C++ coding language. Ms. Wolff noted that while it was a challenging topic to teach, in the end, it all came together for the students. They experienced “aha” moments and felt accomplished about what they learned and produced.
