Become a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Champion with UOIT technology workshops!

How do traffic lights know when to turn green, yellow, or red? Using Arduino and LEDs, we can program and simulate how traffic lights help move people around cities all over the world.

Arduino is an open sourced electronics platform, and its versatile hardware and software may be used by everyone from beginners to experts. This workshop allows you to explore programming, and gain an understanding of the importance of traffic lights in today’s society.

Other programs in the STEM Champion series are:

  • Video Game Controllers with Makey Makey, ages 5 to 10 (Saturday, January 20)
  • Crazy Circuits with LittleBits, ages 7 to 18, (Saturday, February 17)

Please note: program participants will not be able to keep the equipment.

Presented in partnership with the University of Ontario Institute of Technology Faculty of Engineering and Applied Science.
