The Internet of Things (Iot) is created and controlled with artful code.  What was once the realm of desktops, laptops and smartphones, now includes almost anything imaginable from cars to refrigerators, to traffic signals and multitudes of sensors.  Understanding these systems can be very empowering while navigating our world.  For the emerging innovator with programming experience, YHA Internet of Things builds experiential knowledge through IoT design challenges.  Students will code Programmable Logic Controllers (PLC's) using the Arduino Integrated Development Environment (IDE), control electrical circuits and communicate with each other and the internet.  These design challenges present principles of computer science, computer networks, and electrical engineering within an authentic environment.  YHA Internet of Things students return from camp not only with experiential knowledge but also bring home an IoT PLC kit to continue innovating.  For more information visit younghacks.com
