Isabel Mendiola and Peter Haydock, with a combined 50 years of experience in education, have both taught at a variety of educational levels and in multiple content areas. They have facilitated winning projects in numerous student competitions and won international awards for developing award-winning classroom resources.
They have written this book to aid educators, homeschool families, informal learning spaces, and hobbyists in the integration of projects based on the Arduino® UNO microcontroller platform into core school content. The book presents computational thinking, engineering design, problem solving, and project skills for the 21st century.
The ARDUINO® Classroom: STEAM Edition, Volume 1 presents 25 standards-aligned Arduino® UNO projects for year 6 and up. The classroom tested projects supplement a STEM/STEAM curriculum or each can be implemented as standalone or extension activities. The book is sold separately.
