SA Internship Program

Microcontroller Electronics (SAUSCSR015)

Course Fee (per two-week session): NT$68,053
Grades: 9-12
Duration: 2 weeks; Session 2 only: June 20 to July 1 (8:00 - 1:00 pm) 
Homework: Light

A first course in Robotics focusing on electronic control systems and physical computing. Students in this course will learn computer programming and electronics as they relate to the Arduino microcontroller. Students will learn to use common digital and analog sensors, such as switches, light sensors, pressure sensors, and accelerometers to collect data from the physical world and control actuators such as motors, servos, led lights, pneumatic pistons, stepper motors, speakers, and display panels. This course assumes no prior knowledge of robotics or programming.

This course is part of the Robotics and Engineering curriculum.  Successful completion of this course fulfills the Upper School graduation requirement for Computer Science and Robotics.  Successful completion of any two Robotics and Engineering courses (4 weeks) will allow a student to enroll in Level 2 Computer Science and Robotics courses when accompanied by a teacher's recommendation. Regardless of qualifications or prerequisites,  students may not take AP Computer Science or Honors High Performance and Distributed Computing in 9th Grade.
