Arduino Education Starter Kit
This product will be shipped approximately at the end of March, 2020.
Learn electronics and get started with programming in your classroom
step-by-step. No experience necessary.
Teach middle school students the basics of programming, coding, and electronics. No prior knowledge or experience is necessary as the kits guide you through step-by-step, you are well-supported with teacher guides, and lessons can be paced according to your students’ abilities. You can integrate the kit throughout the curriculum, giving your students the opportunity to become confident in programming and electronics with guided sessions and open experimentation. You’ll also be teaching them vital 21st-century skills such as collaboration and problem-solving.
*Typical total lesson time = 90 minutes
(Classes are planned with the possibility to be divided into 2 halves ways)
All the classes will be available online, both for educators and students, following in a linear way.
This course also has a student workbook that students complete as they work through the lessons. You can download a PDF of the logbook at this link and print as many copies as needed for your classroom.
Answer keys and extension activities will also be provided near the end of each lesson.
A version of the Engineering Notebook with solutions for the teacher as a downloadable PDF.
For each lesson, knowledge and facts about inventors, programmers, and engineers are included to give a broader view and historical insights.
Extra hints for teachers for after class research on the inventors that were mentioned in the Inventor’s Spotlight. Ideas to develop inter-curricular studies, presentations, short paragraphs to help the class to have all-round comprehensive experience.
For each lesson we focused on words that might be unfamiliar to students. There are numerous vocabulary activities you can have your students do. Consider these activities as in-class extension activities or as additional assignments to be completed on their own.
Arduino is about doing.
It gives you tools to turn your own ideas and inventions into reality. What once required engineers with degrees in electronics and programming is now done by students your own age using Arduino. So, as you complete this course, let your imagination go.
Be creative. Don’t be afraid to dream.
Our world’s best inventions started as ideas in the minds of inventors who had the vision and drive to make them reality.
Your kit comes with several parts and components that you’ll use to build circuits as you complete lessons and projects throughout this course. Here is a brief description of what is included in your kit.
