Computer Science with Programmed Models of Digital Devices
Abstract: State standards for computer science and STEM/STEAM K-12 can be done in part by having students (appropriate for grades 6- 12) create working models of digital devices with embedded computing that they see around them in their everyday life. Examples range from traffic lights and kitchen timers to digital music players and robotic vehicles. Learn, as a student would, how a micro-controller can be programmed with a simple block language, and how even the simplest device opens the door to deeper challenges.
