Been a while..  

I am actively working on courseware for use in a K-12 school at a big new University in Saudi Arabia (KAUST).

Anyone active in this subject??  There are some good starts here, and a good overall organization..

What about adding curriculum that can be used in other areas of science?  Arduino projects that relate to biology or chemistry?  

  • Students make their own probeware to measure temperature and light.
  • Physics students create their own timing software and photon timing gates to measure speeds.  
  • Chemistry students add an arduino to a coffee maker to experiment with the effects of temperature on the taste of coffee.

I teach science at a small 9-12 school in Minnesota, USA.  This quarter I started a physical computing class with the Arduino and my students are picking up the basics very quickly.  I would love to make arduino projects and tinkering part of each class I teach.

I would love to hear any other ideas on how the arduino can be used in the other core areas of science.
thanks
