We’ll go through some of the early lessons developed by the PodPi team.  For an example of the artwork in the lesson materials, please see our summer camp flyer!  

Lesson 0. GET STARTED (2nd Edition)

The adventures in learning JavaScript and electronics begins!  Receive your own custom Arghuino board (Arduino UNO R3 compatible) and a set of basic components.  This volume will take you through the steps of setting up your computer for the lessons and getting started with the components.

 

Lesson 1. WELCOME TO THE ISLAND

You are almost there!  Meet Ohmie and learn about potentiometers.  Meet Lumina and work with light sensors.  Meet Celsius and measure temperature.  Finally, meet Servo and his motor.  This volume will take you the the Island of PodPi where you will begin your adventures.

 

Lesson 2. IT’S PARTY TIME AT THE BEACH

The Pod Peeps want to celebrate your arrival on the island and are putting on a firework show, but need your help.  Follow them and take the four challenges using the skills your learned in the last two books.  Control up to three RGB LEDs using buttons, potentiometers and light sensors.
