What are all these microcontroller boards and how do I use them?? This workshop covers the basics of common microcontrollers like Arduino, micro:bit, and the Raspberry Pi. Participants will learn about hardware features, software coding languages, and examples of what we can (and can't) do with them. This workshop is designed for educators looking to decide what microcontrollers to start working with and invest in for their classrooms or other educational environments.
