Physical Computing for Novices: Using the TinkerKit with Snap4Arduino

by Przybylla, Mareen
Abstract:
Physical computing is the development of interactive objects or installations that communicate with their environment through sensors and actuators. With the Ar- duino TinkerKit and Snap4Arduino this can easily be integrated in schools. Preassem- bled sensors and actuators and a modification of the Snap visual programming language reduce the complexity of using and programming Arduino. In our workshop, partici- pants will get to know these tools and different approaches to using them in the classroom.
