National Day of Service


Join us on April 13th for our National Day of Service (NDOS) event! This event is apart of the National Urban League Young Professionals initiative. We will host a workshop on electronics prototyping (coding), which will focus on how you can use coding to program LED lights. Students will receive an introduction to the Arduino language and construct basic circuits using the Arduino Uno microcontroller and solderless breadboard. They will also learn to write code to control LED lights.

Grade Level: 6th-8th, 30 slots
