Title: Are there any programs outside the US looking to teach younger students Arduino?
Post by: bluesbud on Jan 02, 2013, 04:05 pm
I'm looking to teach basic Arduino stuff to middle/high school students outside of the United States, preferably in countries that need a little greater assistance in teaching such a topic. Does anyone have any pointers? Thanks!

Hi,

There are some efforts I've heard of in Cambodia and VietNam.. these are aimed at local-language young people.  This needs a local-language mentor who is willing to do translation. Older students in countries like China may be OK in English.  It is accepted that much/most technical chip information etc. is in English.

Some people are using information from the ArduinoInfo.Info WIKI with young people.  Examples:
http://arduino-info.wikispaces.com/Arduino-What-IS-it
and
http://arduino-info.wikispaces.com/YourDuinoStarter

Let me know if I can help somehow...
