Robotics is great. Mindstorms are great. But for a student to take the next step he or she needs to take a step back, learn what's 'below' and from there discover what would be 'above'.
So we, the content creators at FLLCasts, in order to teach the world of electronics and prepare the next generation of creators from the youngest age, by presenting knowledge, asking questions and searching for the answers of these questions, are building this course for basic electronics with Arduino, that we call "Starting with Electronics and Arduino".
Videos for this course are still being released and the course should be completely in 2017!
This course is designed for groups of students where they attend classes, work together and move through the course as a group. Students should be at least 10-11+ years plus. Advanced tasks would allow even more intermediate and older students to find it interesting and pleasant.
The arbitrary meaning that we put in the words 'below' and 'above' is in the sense that 'below' each Mindstorms robot there is a ton of knowledge of electronics and programming that makes it work. The Mindstorms also only get you that far. They kind of work to a specific boundary of knowledge. 'Above', there lays a completely different world that we hope students would explore and create.
