Camp Day 1 - Basic electronic circuits useful in ag and environmental monitoring

 In our first day we introduce IoT physical computing components such as sensors, indicators and other actuators, and bluetooth and wifi adaptors. And then we get participants brainstorming what they might build.  

Day 1 exercises are done with Arduino Uno R3's, with breadboards to attach LEDs.  We often begin with building and then programming a simple traffic light, and then add alarm buzzers (indicators), and other actuators such as doors, gates, and drive trains driven by servo motors.
