UNO Ultimate Starter Kit from RoboLinking
Two honors students, Seth Loftin and Ryan Eppinette, each recently received an electronics kit to use in their physics lab couse under Dr. Gary Boucher.
In an e-mail, Dr. Boucher wrote, "After giving thought as to what I could do with these students as an extra, I decided that a digital electronics approach would fit with the theme of circuits in the course. It is also something I have taught many times at LSUS. My suggestion to both of the students, and they like the idea, is to purchase an Arduino project kit from Amazon, and teach them how to use a microprocessor/microcontroller to do various circuit functions."
As most faculty who teach honors courses at SAU know, the Honors College has funds designated to elevate contract honors courses to honors level. Dr. Boucher's course is a good example of that process.
