The Arduino Workshop at the British School in New Cairo was organized in cooperation with Sharabassy Built-Environment and Make the Future. The workshop was aimed towards high school students, teaching them about the internet of things and sensing technologies.
Using an approach of incremental iteration, we went hand in hand with the students to start experimenting with electronics and electric circuits, to programming their first micro controller for a game and finally streaming their data on the internet.
We used materials and books from the RWTH Aachen head of the HCI chair Jan Borchers, and the session was given by Hesham Omran, a masters graduate from RWTH Aachen in Human Computer Interaction, with a bachelors in Digital Media Engineering at the German University in Cairo.
