by Sylvia “Super-Awesome” Todd
Written and illustrated by young Maker Movement sensation “Super-Awesome” Sylvia, Sylvia’s Super-Awesome Project Book: Super-Simple Arduino shares the power of Arduino microcontroller programming with learners of all ages through exciting engineering projects. Sylvia’s whimsical graphics and clever explanations make powerful STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) concepts accessible and fun.
Super-Awesome Sylvia is a kid who loves making, tinkering, and art. Her online video series, Super-Awesome Sylvia’s Super-Awesome Maker Show, has millions of views. In this super fun book, Sylvia teaches kids to understand Arduino microcontroller programming by inventing an adjustable strobe and two digital musical instruments you can play! Along the way, they will learn a lot about electronics, coding, science, and engineering.
Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak shares his praise for the book:
“Doing things like this made me love building projects and made me feel special when I was quite young. The knowledge of how to do such things is around but it’s almost always more important to get youngsters to WANT to do thing like this. Sylvia carries that motivation factor so well that I actually would want to embark on these projects myself. The hardest steps are the beginning ones and these projects are simple enough to not lose the interest of youngsters who want to build things in their lives.”
Sylvia’s Super-Awesome Project Book: Super-Simple Arduino Volume 2, is now available from Amazon and other online retailers. And yes, “Volume 2” is a joke, there is no Volume one. Don’t ask!
