Learn, Build ...Innovate

Interested in Learning to Code With Electronics?

Kick start your adventure with a World Wide Celebration of Arduino during the week of March 23rd through March 27th.

Arduino Day 2021Arduino Day 2021

Participate in virtual coding challenges right here on TUIT.Tech and experience the empowerment of learning to code with Arduino.

Challenges open at 9:00 am EST on Tuesday, March 23rd, 2021.

If this Virtual Coding Event inspires you, your class, makerspace, or family to start building and coding with electronics, consider contacting me as we move into Spring and Summer. Who knows what we can learn, build and innovate together! (I am especially interested in collaborating with a local "teacher of technology" to work with robotics.)

 Get Your Arduino Code Editor Up and Running

1)  With a Windows PC, you can download and install the Arduino IDE directly onto your computer.

2)  With a Mac, the process is similar.

3)  Use Arduino's Online Editor. Accessible from anywhere, when you're connected to the Internet.

        a) Sign up for a free Arduino Create account at: https://create.arduino.cc/

        b) Click "Arduino Web Editor" and "Create a New Account"

        c) SIGN UP with your username, email, and password.

        d) Click the "CREATE ACCOUNT" button.

        e) Activate your account through the email message you receive.

        f) Login in to your account and go to Web Editor.

4)  If you have a Chromebook, use Arduino Create from the Chrome Web Store. (I haven't tested this one because I don't have a Chromebook.) Apparently, it costs 0.99 per month.

5)  If you have a school Chromebook (used by many students), the IT department can install the "Arduino Create For Education Chrome App".
