February Break Training: C Programming & Digital Electronics

TechBoston and Machine Science are teaming up again during the February Vacation Break 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.

Visit the BPS Technology blog to read about all the fun students had during the December Vacation Break. Students who participated in December should note that the same material will be covered as in December.
