Petrosains Science Festival 2016 - Coding with Chumbaka: Embedded System with Arduino


Embedded systems are essentially computers which perform only specific functions. They are found in many common items such as remote controls, digital watches, MP3 player, and many modern devices we use every day.

In this module, learners complete a series of projects leading up to designing their very own embedded system. They experiment with various sensors (e.g. PIR, ultrasonic, temperature, tilt, and microphone) and actuators (e.g. servo motor, LCD, relay, speaker and LED).

The embedded system used is Arduino and the programming language is C/C++.

Audience: 8 years old and above

The mission of Chumbaka, a social business start-up of DreamCatcher, is to re-ignite children’s inborn passion to learn. We hope to inspire everyone, parents included, to become life-long learners (and hence save the human race, as explained in Big History!). Chumbaka Sdn Bhd is located at Persiaran Apec, Cyberjaya, Selangor.

About PETROSAINS Science Festival:

The Petrosains Science Festival is Petrosains’ initiative to provide a unified platform for communities in the fields of science and technology, such as the industry players and science academia, to come together for the common purpose of engaging and inspiring the Malaysian public, especially the younger generation, to the wonders of science and technology. The festival is similar to other such events held in major cities such as Edinburgh, Manchester, New York and Singapore, and is another step taken by Petrosains to play our role as a leading science centre and important supporting component to the country’s educational landscape. Through this Festival, we hope to further contribute to the popularizing of science to the public that combines the engaging and interactive Petrosains approach with the day-to-day relevance that industry and academia partners will bring.
