The e-Lite group will participate at the 13th ACM SIGCHI Symposium on Engineering Interactive Computing Systems (EICS 2021) with a Late-Breaking Work (LBW) entitled "On Computational Notebooks to Empower Physical Computing Novices." EICS 2021 will be held virtually due to Covid-19 from 8-11 June 2021.

In this paper, a tool (built on top of the Jupyter computational notebook) is proposed to support step-by-step assisted learning and knowledge sharing. In particular, the Jupyter notebook functionalities were extended, and a custom-tailored kernel was implemented to seamlessly enable the interaction between the end-user web interface and the Arduino boards. This approach might effectively support physical computing novices in understanding, writing, and executing the code while empowering them to document and share the development steps they followed.

Juan Pablo Sáenz will present the work on Thursday, June 10, from 14:45 to 15:45.
