Teaching physics with arduino

A new approach to experimental physique

Drawing inspiration from the practices of design schools or art schools, this course proposes physicist students to make their own Students’ Lab. After an initiation in the form of challenges and games, they have to design and build their experimental setup, then analyze the results, in five days. It is an initiation close to the research process, which renews the vision that students have of experimental physics: more creative but also riskier and with unexpected outcomes!
