December Break Training: C Programming & Digital Electronics

TechBoston and Machine Science are teaming up again during the December Recess to offer Boston high school students a chance to engage in hands-on engineering activities.

This 3-day course will give students the chance to build and program their own electronic devices including the chance to learn and explore the concepts behind how the following components work: button switches, light emitting diodes (LEDs), liquid crystal displays (LCDs), electronic speakers, digital timers, infrared remote controls, and infrared sensors

Students will write computer programs to control these devices, using the C programming language. A variety of programming concepts will be taught, including loop structures, conditional statements, and variables. If time allows, projects may also involve GPS, MP3, and robotics technology.

The mini-course will be held Monday through Wednesday, December 28th to 30th, from 8:30 AM to 3PM at Madison Park. There is no cost for a student to participate, but pre-registration is required as space is limited. Please contact Eric Esteves (eesteves AT, 617-908-1565) to register (registration form) or for more information.
