"It's like a toy but it’s not an ordinary toy, itong device na ito (this device) will help our students explore their capabilities deeper," said Vilchor Perdido, department head of Computer Science (CS) when asked to describe the newest equipment granted to their department.

The department received thirty-eight (38) units of the Arduino Upgraded Learning Kit on January 16 this year. The kit includes selection of the most common and useful electronic components such as breadboard, storage component box, LED lights, resistor, buzzer, digital tube, flame sensor and more.

According to Emmanuel Danguilan, faculty member of the Department of Information Technology, the kits will greatly benefit the students especially in their programming and human interaction classes, "gamit itong technology na ito mas maiintindihan na ngayon ng students yung buong proseso ng programming, dati kasi hanggang gawa lang sila ng program pero hindi nai-implement, pero ngayon they can turn their ideas into reality (with this technology, students will be able to understand fully the whole process of programming. Before, they were only limited to encoding programs and not being able to put their programs into physical form, but now they can turn their ideas into reality)".

Using this technology, students can build several creative projects, starting from the basics of electronics such as a simple alarm system, an alarm clock and a mood lamp, to more complex projects such as robotics. 

Meanwhile, Rodelyn M. Aguinaldo, department head of Information Technology reassured that the kit's microcontroller will not turn obsolete after using once, "pwede siyang gamitin again and again kasi pwedeng burahin at palitan yung program na binu-burn diyan. For sure matagal itong pakikinabanagan ng mga students (it can be used again and again because the program written to the microcontroller can be erased and changed. For sure the students will be using this gadget for a long time".

The department hopes that the addition of this gadget will convince students who plan to take up IT or CS to enroll in NVSU.
