Description: 
Participants in this two-part, hands-on session will learn about and build an 'open hardware' PIC microcontroller development system known as CHRP. CHRP is an inexpensive system that is designed to grow with the students as they learn about electronics, interfacing, robotics and programming in grades ten, eleven and twelve. Session participants will learn how to integrate the CHRP project into their classrooms as they build a CHRP board and program it using PIC assembly code. No prior PIC programming experience is required. Participants are asked to bring a laptop pre-loaded with the MPLAB IDE software available free from http://www.microchip.com. (19mb download)
