Overengineering, while not a desired practice in the field of engineering when implementing solutions for real-world problems, can be a valuable learning tool in the classroom. In this hands-on, project-based class students will learn the principles of electrical engineering and Arduino programming to design an overengineered planter pot. This class is part of our Code & Grow program. What you will learn: * Electrical engineering and electronic theory * Programming using the Arduino platform * Comprehension and understanding of concepts * Problem-solving and critical thinking * Practical (or in our case, impractical) application of knowledge * Collaborative learning and teamwork * Adaptive iterations and redesign * Building confidence and resilience * Awareness of trade-offs and optimization Designed for: 7 - 11 graders Difficulty Level: Beginner Prerequisites: None When: Saturdays 12 PM - 1:45 PM PST from February 10 through April 20 Where: Ohlone College, 43600 Mission Blvd, Fremont, CA 94539 What to bring to class: Students are required to bring their own Mac OS-based or Windows-based laptop.
