My Arduino project

What's the coolest thing I can do with an Arduino board?

What are we going to do?

After a couple of weeks working with Arduino and learning how to use different components, it's time you think about something cool to do with it.

It really is up to you, as you can choose any project you like as long as we have all the needed materials.  Be creative and remember that sky is the limit!!

In addition to the project itself, you'll have to design a poster and a short presentation. Take a look at the following items  to be sure you know what, when and how to do it.

Remember that we will be visiting the Arduino robotics fair at Barcelona and it would be amazing if your project is chosen to be displayed there!


Arduino project

You can use any available component (ask your teacher if you have doubts).


Design a poster that includes the title/name, picture of the project, list of materials and short description. Make it visually attractive!


You have to prepare a short presentation explaining your project to others. Use language scaffolding to prepare for the presentation. It must include the title/name, picture of the project, list of materials and short description.
