Art Education Learning Lab: Building Circuits on a Budget in TinkerCAD
Interested in teaching circuits to kids on a budget? You can build circuits and program Arduino microcontrollers in TinkerCAD, and we’ll show you how. This free two-hour workshop will teach you some basics in circuitry and how to simulate it in a 3D environment using TinkerCAD, a free web-based software program. Each participant will create their own interactive circuitry simulator using a variety of components, such as power sources, LEDs, breadboards, microcontrollers, switches, buttons and resistors. It’s a great way to show your students how to build interactive projects with Arduino and get immediate results. Soon you’ll be up and running as a teacher in a digital classroom!
Supplies: If possible, participants should create their own TinkerCAD account at tinkercad.com prior to the workshop.
