SMART DEVICE DESIGN
Smart Device Design Courses
Our environment has been surrounded by smart devices. There are intelligent devices behind our mobile phone, our cars, and many devices in our homes that provide the necessary services and facilities by processing with the codes loaded on the microcontrollers, collected from the sensors. For this reason, it is appropriate to define these courses as smart device design, which include electronic design and coding, rather than robotic design. We show our children that, they can make everything around them smart by using sensors, microcontrollers, coding skills and engines.
Smart Device Design with Arduino training is done by our own workshop sets. The biggest feature of these boxes is that they show the children can design almost every smart device that they see around by using 10 sensors, one Arduino Uno microcontroller, and one breadboard, one DC motor, one servo motor, one RGB LED and various LED’s.
Secondary school students code Arduino Uno with Scratch for Arduino software, while high school students use Arduino’s own original IDE. A student following the online multimedia course content at the BG easily develops complex electronic circuits, writes the codes necessary for the desired service, and makes the system work.
Smart Device Design with Raspberry Pi: Middle and high school students create smart devices by using sensors in our smart device box and “Raspberry PI” and code with “Python” software. Students, who follow the online multimedia course content in the BG, learn in the 1st lesson how to code using the sensors on the smart device, in the 2nd and 3rd lessons are focused on teaching the concept of the internet of objects using tools such as bluetooth and wifi.
Smart Device Design with Micro: bit: Elementary school students learn how to collect the information with the sensors on the Micro: bit card and how to perform different actions. Students who follow the online multimedia course content of 50 lessons in three sections in the BG will learn how to use sensors and how to code using the code blocks.
Electronic Circuit Design Set: We have developed these trainings for the 1st and 4th grade students of kindergarten. The set consists of electronic circuit elements suitable for the use of this age group. The Students can build dozens of different circuits and make fun designs where energy is transformed into movement, different sounds and light. The students can experience the input-process-output course without need of coding.
