4 sessions starting on May 1
What You'll Do:
Join Gearbox Labs in this four-week workshop on building and using Arduino-connected science sensors to monitor water.
This workshop will feature four water sensors:
- Water Temperature Sensor
- pH Sensor
- Soil Moisture Sensor
- Turbidity Sensor
The workshop is designed for educators, science students, and science enthusiasts who want to learn how to build and use Arduino-connected, water monitoring sensors to collect data. The workshop will start with digital design and prototyping and then continue to building and coding the sensor.
The workshop will also cover collecting larger scientific data sets using MS Excel and will demonstrate Internet of Things connections to sensors.
Experience with Arduino Uno is helpful and having the parts to build the projects will maximize your participation.
Skill Level:Basic computer and internet skills.
Skills you will learn:Coding in C++ Data Collection using Excel Building Scientific Data Collection Devices

Show and Tell (Presentation or Demonstration)
For the past 15 years, Ms. Mendiola has been working as an educator in elementary, middle, and high schools in Monterrey Mexico. Ms. Mendiola has taught Biology, Physics, and Chemistry and is a pioneer of STEM/STEAM programming in Monterrey. She teaches in both English and Spanish for learners of diverse skill levels.
For her current teaching position, she planned, implemented, and executed the preparation of students to compete in regional and national science contests such as JASON Project, Youth Leader Explorers and Comisión Nacional de Ciencias y Tecnología (CONACYT). Three years ago, she understood the importance of the UNO platform and began incorporating it into her teaching. For the past two years, she has written, implemented, and assessed the junior high school technology curriculum focused on UNOs. For her school, she has had the opportunity to write and implement after-school programs and training for teachers as well as the junior high school science and technology fair.
Ms. Mendiola is the co-author of The ARDUINO Classroom: STEAM Edition, The STEAM+C Classroom: Internet of Things Edition, and The STEAM+C Classroom: Science and Engineering Fair Edition.
