In this 1-week, 5-lesson unit, students will engage in an engineering design challenge within their computer science class. Students are challenged to design, construct, and test a six to eight node Arduino network as a model of a neural network as they explore introductory programming, computer engineering, and system design. The engineering design challenge is placed within the context of sensorimotor neural engineering. Some of the lessons in this unit feature special equipment, including Arduino Uno microcontrollers. The lessons were developed by Denise Thompson of Orting High School (Orting, Wash.) and Paul Zimmer of South Kitsap High School (Port Orchard, Wash.) as part of the 2015 Research Experience for Teachers program at the Center for Neurotechnology (University of Washington).
