Hack Sioux Falls (http://hacksiouxfalls.com/)

Teaching kids about electronics, embedded technology, and engineering. (No experience necessary)

This quarter we are building a Bluetooth controlled vehicle that includes a wheels, motor board, Arduino Uno, Bluetooth module, lasers, and a loud buzzer.

Each quarter, we will issue a new and creative challenge that asks kids to build their own solution to the problem. Challenges will be related to electronics and embedded engineers; for example, transmit an 8-bit number across the room without using a wired connection. Or remotely turn off a light over the internet.

Challenges will have dozens of possible solutions; we want to encourage kids to think, coordinate, prototype, and build their solution. We are reinforcing critical thinking, problem-solving, working with others, and the understanding of complex solutions as part of each challenge, these are all valuable skills for our kids to learn.

We will provide each kid with all of the electronics necessary to complete the challenge.
