fabClass

 

FabClass, is the flagship FabLabz educational program for schools.

FabClass  is a modular STEAM program consisting of a Kitbox with 10 projects and  easy-to-assemble experiments and  guided training/support. The program,  tailored for ages 13  to 17, has 5 modules and introduces students to  the foundations of  programming and basic coding, Arduino boards and  digital signals, analog  signals and serial communication, robotics,  power systems and motors,  wireless communication via Bluetooth and  advanced sensors.

What is STEM ?

 STEM is a curriculum based on  the idea of educating students in four specific disciplines — science,  technology, engineering and mathematics — in an interdisciplinary and  applied approach.

Arduino in STEM

 

              Arduino is an open-source hardware, software and content  platform with a global community. It’s intended for anyone making  interactive projects. Arduino technology is used to:


Develop:   At universities it is widely adopted in the fields of  engineering, Internet of Things, robotics, art, and design, to name just  a few.      

         

Teach and learn:  Many secondary schools use it with innovative techniques for cross-curriculum studies.   

            

Play:       Primary schools use toys powered by Arduino technology  to introduce physical learning, logic, building skills, and problem  solving. Arduino’s Immersive Educational Environment promotes the  creative process through project-based learning, with a focus on student  interaction and group collaboration.
