Arduino Lesson #10

Lesson Objective: Create and build a functioning instrument using Arduino components and your creativity. Determine the figures of merit for the designed instrument.

Dear students,

You have learned about many instruments this semester and about Arduino devices and circuitry. These are not separate items, as the Arduino is just an attempt to modernize instrumental design. It is my sincere hope that you have learned more about the “black boxes” that are instruments thanks to these Arduino lessons. In this final lesson, I want you to use your creativity just as you did for lesson #9. Design an instrument using an Arduino. Any instrument. It doesn’t have to be a new kind of instrument or overly fancy, but it should be able to be used for chemical analysis. Talk with your professor to determine their specific desires for this project. Then figure out what resources are at your disposal before you begin designing your project. There are so many options and I hope you will email me and tell me about what you create in this final lesson!

As Albert Einstein once said, “Creativity is intelligence having fun.” You have learned so much this semester! Now show off your creativity and let’s see what you can do!

Thank you for joining me in this journey!

Warmest Regards, Dr. Leslie Hiatt
