Hey TinkRers! It’s time to add some high tech to your bicycle and bring it into the modern age! In this week long project, students will bring their bikes to camp and give them some amazing new capabilities with a computer device that they can program and attach to their bikes.

They’ll program program the device to act as:
A digital speedometer: Measure how fast the bike is going and what distance they
travelled
A burglar alarm: An alarm will go off if anybody moves your bike and can only be turned
off with a secret code
A high-brightness LED flashlight: Lights up the road ahead and flashes so that the bikers
are easier to see at night

Students will work with the latest technology to build their bike devices, such as Arduino microcontrollers, and they will learn how to wire it together and program it themselves. Finally, to test the device, the students will hit the road and go on bike rides to see how well it works! They will securely attach the device to their bikes and will take it home at the end of the week!

TinkRers will bring their bike to camp on Monday and will take home at the end of the camp on Friday. They will be taking bike rides with counselors to test their devices.

What TinkRers take home: All the bionic components they design
