With an Arduino, students can program different functions such as LED lights, switches and touch sensors.  To use an Arduino, students can download the free software which programs it with code. Scratch for Arduino also extends the block coding model with which students are familiar.

Edgorithm has assembled a Lesson Plan incorporating Science expectations involving circuits. The lesson can be extended into other projects that involve more program and circuit components.
