Arduino Fundamentals for Secondary Teachers - Sanjin Dedic

Arduino Fundamentals for Secondary Teachers / 2. Online was the course I completed it didn’t come up as an option on the drop down menu when i did feedback.
The course was perfectly aligned with TAS course content. it covers the syllabus outcomes that are the hardest to cover Sanjin does a wonderful job explaining everything that needs to be explained without putting in extra confusing information.
