Arduino is an open-source electronics platform or board and software used to program that is designed to make electronics more accessible to everyone
In order to design and analyze a circuit, we need a working understanding of Ohm’s Law.
The analogWrite command only approximates analog voltages and does not produce an actual analog signal. It works by quickly turning the voltage to the pin on and off or pulse width modulation.
Arduino refers to an open-source electronics platform or board and the software used to program it. Arduino is designed to make electronics more accessible to artists, designers, hobbyists, and anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments.
Capacitors are an important part of electronic components. Capacitors store charge like a battery and discharge rapidly.
Binary code represents a universal language because it is only one code for the entire planet to use and computers understand. Zero and One
Composites can be found just about everywhere: in airplanes and sports cars, golf clubs, and guitars, boats and baseball bats, bathtubs and circuit boards, and even bridges. Composites make bicycles and skis lighter, kayaks and canoes stronger, houses warmer, and helmets tougher.
A semiconductor device with three connections, capable of amplification and switching that changed the world forever.
Landscape architects design and plan the various outdoor spaces in modern communities - neighborhood parks, soccer fields, school grounds, places of worship, office parks, shopping malls, cemeteries, and lakes - creating outdoor places that people will care about and want to visit.
Air rushing into your lungs, tires on the car need additional air in the winter these are examples of how the gas laws affect our daily lives
Earning the Robotics merit badge requires a Scout to understand how robots move (actuators), sense the environment (sensors), and understand what to do (programming); he should demonstrate robot design in building a robot. You should help ensure that the Scout has sufficiently explored the field of robotics to understand what it is about, and to discover whether this may be a field of interest for him as a career.
As batteries improve, solar power, off-grid is becoming a reality
The future will depend on alternate energy resources. Solar generated power is becoming reliable, sustainable energy for the future
Off-grid solar power requires additional equipment for charging and maintaining batteries
People use countless fibers and fabrics in their everyday lives: clothes, carpets, curtains, towels, sheets, upholstered furniture. Add to that list boat sails, book bindings, bandages, flags, sleeping bags, mailbags, airbags, seat belts, backpacks, parachutes, umbrellas, basketball nets, and more.
Every modern community has systems to handle human waste safely. In completing this badge the student will discover what those systems are, how the systems work, who is responsible for the systems and the training needed to manage those systems.
