INFORMATION FOR TEACHERS

MadMaker is a 5-week open online course that is designed to bring integrated STEM into the classroom. The course utilises the Arduino Esplora and Processing to create an engaging and interactive environment to introduce STEM and their applications in everyday day life.

The course is an introduction to STEM by programming small computers (microcontrollers) to perform simple tasks. It is organised as a set of challenges, each week a new set of activities is proposed around a different theme, and students submit their solutions. The Esplora has all the sensors and outputs ready for you to upload a program and start experimenting. No wiring required!

The content is based on the NSW and Australia Curriculum targeting the areas of Science, Mathematics and Digital Technology.
