A basic knowledge of Arduinos or other similar systems is essential to any engineering program and engineering projects in the ever-evolving electronic world. Engineering and science students are often using Arduinos in class activities and projects. This workshop will focus on introducing the Arduino as the data acquisition platform in freshman engineering physics and engineering courses. The workshop will emphasize how the Arduino can be used in the laboratory portion of the introductory physics and engineering courses. An overview of the Arduino system will be presented along with hardware necessary to interface with equipment already available in many freshman laboratories. A number of sample projects will be presented. Some interactive, hands-on activities will demonstrate how to apply the knowledge. Participants will need to bring a laptop with the Arduino sketch software (ARDUINO 1.8.5) installed. This software is available as a free download at https://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/Software.
