Python Unleashed

Python is one of the most popular programming languages in the world and is now used to teach programming at six of the top ten computer science undergraduate programs in the United States. Python has a reputation for being a well-supported computer language that is ideal for education and is also a favorite among scientists. This workshop acts as an introduction to computer programming with the Python programming language. The basics of imperative programming will be covered as well as ideas from selected areas of computer science, data science and education. We will review the basics of the language and discuss how it is used and taught.

Intro to Arduino – Using Arduino IDE

Arduino consists of both a physical programmable circuit board- often referred to as a microcontroller- and a piece of software, or IDE (Integrated Development Environment) that runs on your computer, and it is used to write and upload computer code to the physical board. This workshop will explain how to control hardware and sensors by using the IDE to program the arduino. The Arduino language is a set of C/C++ functions that can be called from your code. We will review the process of writing sketches and loading the code into the Arduino.
