Arduino: CTC – Creative Technologies In The Classroom Education Project

Creative Technologies In The Classroom (CTC) is a part of the official Arduino Education program, CTC 101 is the flagship Arduino educational program for schools. Arduino CTC 101 is a modular STEAM program consisting of a toolbox with 26 projects and easy-to-assemble experiments, an online platform, and guided training/support for educators. The program, tailored for ages 13 to 17, has 5 modules and introduces students to the foundations of programming and basic coding, Arduino boards and digital signals, analog signals and serial communication, robotics, power systems and motors, wireless communication via Bluetooth and advanced sensors.

I worked with UX for Arduino CTC since it reached its 2nd iteration of development in 2014. During my UX work, my responsibilities included the design of the education web platform, features, testing, evaluation, education material, tracking/gamification features and more. I also worked on the PR, media production, documentation and the creation of guides and manuals. Thousands of instructional images and many video guides were created along with other education material over several years.
