Arduino 001

Arduino for teachers and students new to STEM

In this first part about the Arduino micro-controller, we'll set it up and learn the basics of programming it. We'll look into good coding practices such as bumpy text, using variables and how to do debugging when things don't work as expected.

Frank Gibson
Frank Gibson

Frank Gibson majored in digital and industrial electronics and holds a degree in higher education from the University of Pretoria in South Africa. He is also certified by Carnegie Mellon University to teach Robotics and Coding.

Frank hails from South Africa, but as his last name suggests, his forefathers were Scottish and emigrated South in pursuit of better opportunities. Likewise, Frank lectured electronics at a college in Pretoria, until he moved to Taiwan in pursuit of better opportunities for him and his son. Like most foreigners who come to Taiwan, he started out by teaching English at a cram school (way back in 1999), but eventually managed to land a job as a Math teacher at an international school. Since then, he has taught Algebra, Physics, Geometry, Robotics, STEM and Computer Science. Technology and machines in general have been his lifelong passions.

Frank loves living in Taiwan, not only because it is an excellent place for a technology lover to live , but it is also a very beautiful island. He enjoys taking scenic scooter rides all over Taiwan in his free time.
