Many students in cohort 1 are nearing or have finished their proof-of-concepts, and today they are finishing up their required documentation, blog posts, and part orders. Cohort 2 students began drafting ideas for their own projects.
Today my students in cohort 1 continued working on their proofs of concept, and my new cohort 2 students continued setting up their Slack accounts, WordPress blog, and finishing their applications.
Those students, cohort 2, will begin where their peers, cohort 1, began back in September, while cohort 1 worked on proof-of-concepts.
Today, students continued work on their proofs of concept. Some students have finished while others are in various states of completion. It is OK and expected for some to take longer than others. The time needed and complexity of each project is different, and completing the proof-of-concept will result in some students being farther along than others, it all depends.
Today, students concentrated on their blog posts. When they had made significant progress, they resumed work on their proofs of concept.
Each student who had completed their Project Proposal Document was handed a proof-of-concept plan to follow. The intention of the proof-of-concept is to develop a simple code and mechanical design with the microcontroller that proves their overall design will be successful, and to learn the basics of the parts they will use. Each student's plan... Continue Reading →
Today we continued working with Adafruit IO with the objective of controlling a microservo from a web interface. The notes from class can be found here. Like last class, the lesson today is based on Adafruit's IO Basics guide. The example code can be found in File > Examples > Adafruit IO. This is the... Continue Reading →
