Program Overview

Summer 2020

At Sense It (Ann Arbor) you’ll learn the fundamentals behind wireless sensors and how they are being used in modern technology. You’ll get experience working with remote measuring devices, programming, and connecting circuits. You’ll get a closer look at how these devices connect with one another and gather information, and control your own wireless sensors to complete a task of your choice.
