Simple Tools to Enhance Student Engagement with Processing

Favorited Favorite 0

Processing is a simple, easy‑to‑learn open‑source programming language used by artists, scientists, mathematicians and gamers. Integrating this tool into your classroom will empower your students to create simulations, models, and data visualizations. This hands‑on workshop will culminate in designing your own data collection dashboard.

We will be using our Danger Shield paired with a pre-programmed RedBoard Arduino to collect data from a variety of sensors and then pull them into Processing to visualize the data in a number of different ways. We will demonstrate a number techniques to collect, visualize, and process data for science classrooms.
