New to Arduino? 

The Plug and Make Kit is perfect for beginners! Our comprehensive, free, multilingual online guide will walk you through the entire Arduino ecosystem. In addition to the seven fully documented projects to spark your creativity, it has detailed instructions on using the innovative Modulino® nodes. It’s a guide designed to make your learning journey smooth and enjoyable, ensuring you can dive into making with confidence.

What’s in the box?

The Arduino Plug and Make Kit is based on an innovative hardware approach: components just connect together – no breadboard, jumper wires or soldering needed.
Inside the box, you will find:

  • The cutting-edge Arduino UNO R4 WiFi main board: The powerhouse of your projects.
  • 7 Modulino® nodes: Sensors and actuators for different functionalities (see details below)
  • The Modulino Base to keep your projects looking and feeling neat.
  • USB-C® cable with USB-A adapter: Easily power up and upload code to your Arduino.
  • Qwiic cables: Effortlessly connect Modulino® nodes and the Arduino board.
  • Spacers, screws, and nuts: Secure everything in place for a permanent installation.

The Plug and Make Kit has been designed to be easy, quick and fun. We’ve taken care of the complexity, so you can turn your ideas into fully operational devices even in a single session. Start a new hobby, or perhaps a lifelong passion, by accessing the full potential of technology – and yours.

What are Modulino®?

Modulino® are sensors and actuators that simply connect via the UNO R4 WiFi’s onboard Qwiic connector. You can connect more than one for more complex projects and never have to wonder which side goes where, because the connector is polarized.
The Plug and Make Kit includes one of each:

  • Modulino® Knob: for super-fine value adjustments
  • Modulino® Pixels: eight LEDs to shine bright, dim down, or change color – you choose!
  • Modulino® Distance: a time-of-flight proximity sensor to measure distances with precision
  • Modulino® Movement: to perfectly capture movements like pitch, roll or tilt
  • Modulino® Buzzer: to generate your own alarm sounds or simple tunes
  • Modulino® Thermo: a sensor for both temperature and humidity data
  • Modulino® Buttons: three buttons for quick project navigation
