Hello all,

I teach entry level Metals and Robotics courses in a high school in Wa State...check out our Project Photo gallery: http://whitesalmonschools.net/ecar/other-projects/


Are there any educators out there using Arduino to teach electronics in high school or jr high? Can any of you suggest curriculum or projects to start out with? 

Thanks!

There's a lot of Arduino starter kits out there: http://www.google.com/search?q=arduino+starter+kit

They all come with Arduino, breadboard, tutorial books, the components needed for the projects, etc.

Pick one.

Hi,

There are LOTS of Educators teaching with Arduino.  I have sold 100's of Starter Kits, both standard and customized to a particular University.

There is lots of free Tutorial / HowTo  INFO on our ArduinoInfo WIKI here - http://arduinoinfo.info 

See this for a typical Arduino Startup learning tutorial:

Let me know if I can help with questions...

Worth also looking into http://shrimping.it , which shares a homebrew design intended to help educators by reducing the per-student cost of Arduino compatible prototyping, as well as gradually curating classroom and workshop resources to help adopting this design.
