High-­school science teachers can radically reduce the cost of building up science labs while giving students opportunities to engage in genuine design processes by introducing them to open­-source hardware. A vast collection of free and pre­-designed low-­cost scientific tools are available, many of which can be printed on a open­-source 3­D printer, including the printer itself. Not only can students benefit from access to research grade equipment, there are ample opportunities for students to build on, improve, and customize scientific tools as part of their curriculum. In this way the number and value of the open­-source hardware designs can expand with student effort, enabling a powerful motivating factor for science education.

Sure, but today’s novices will be writing tomorrow’s tutorials, and if we tell them today that “and” is a thing, whereas “&&” is a…
I agree completely and that is the point I was attempting to make (perhaps not as clearly as possible). Shawn stated that XOR isn’t…

You’re right that the choice of basis operators is arbitrary. (A common basis choice in high-level languages is AND, OR, and NOT.) You’re…
There is no need to teach people obtuse punctuation like “&&” and “||” when C++ (and, by extension, Arduino) has perfectly reasonable “and”,…
It’s interesting that you expressed the XOR as: P ⊕ Q = (P || Q) && !(P && Q) The classical expression for XOR is P ⊕ Q = (P && !Q) ||…
SparkFun’s tutorials are really fun and easily accessible. Thank you so much for sharing
I admire Catherine Johnson and she is my inspiration. Apollo 13 was the movie for me that created interest in space and Nasa. Watched the…
Nice write up, but I want to pick on one thing. You said exclusive OR is not considered a fundamental logic operator because it can be…
