Do you like to tinker with electronics? Are you interested in creating interactive objects or environments? Meet Arduino “a open-source electronics prototyping platform based on flexible, easy-to-use hardware and software.” Create neat stuff like a pushbutton controlled LED…or a BarometricPressureSensor that can “read air pressure and temperature from a sensor.” Arduino is not brand new but it’s definitely cool and new to me!
My 5th grader is using these in her science club. Are you smarter than a 5th grader? Not me! Sheesh!
