Learn Arduino From a Prodigy

Learn Arduino From a Prodigy

Schuyler St. Leger presented an “Arduino 101” session at the Desert Code Camp software developer conference, held in Arizona last weekend. A 12-year-old maker and member of HeatSync Labs Makerspace in Mesa, AZ, Schuyler is a quite simply a prodigy. Schuyler does a remarkably good job explaining Arduino and walking through the basics. His pacing is perfect and he speaks so clearly and confidently. I am amazed by Schuyler and his own presence as a teacher before an audience of adults.

Schuyler’s self-styled Twitter handle is: @DocProfSky. Schuyler is definitely worth following.

DALE DOUGHERTY is the leading advocate of the Maker Movement. He founded Make: Magazine 2005, which first used the term “makers” to describe people who enjoyed “hands-on” work and play. He started Maker Faire in the San Francisco Bay Area in 2006, and this event has spread to nearly 200 locations in 40 countries, with over 1.5M attendees annually. He is President of Make:Community, which produces Make: and Maker Faire.

In 2011 Dougherty was honored at the White House as a “Champion of Change” through an initiative that honors Americans who are “doing extraordinary things in their communities to out-innovate, out-educate and out-build the rest of the world.” At the 2014 White House Maker Faire he was introduced by President Obama as an American innovator making significant contributions to the fields of education and business. He believes that the Maker Movement has the potential to transform the educational experience of students and introduce them to the practice of innovation through play and tinkering.

Dougherty is the author of “Free to Make: How the Maker Movement Is Changing our Jobs, Schools and Minds” with Adriane Conrad. He is co-author of "Maker City: A Practical Guide for Reinventing American Cities" with Peter Hirshberg and Marcia Kadanoff.
