set up arduino software
Students will be learning about hardware and software engineering. They will be building circuits and coding. You will need to order the Elegoo Mega 2560 COMPLETE Project Kit (~$62) and install the software on your computer before class begins. You can download onto Windows, Mac, or Linux computers. Need help? Email us and we can help with installation!
Click here to download the Arduino software. Then install it.
This software can also be found on the disk included in the Arduino kit.
The computer your child will be using needs a standard USB port. A standard port accepts USB cables that look like the picture below. If you have a Mac without a standard USB port, not to worry!
You can order this inexpensive USB adapter.
