Description

With schools out and at-home learning in, we are doing our part to help both parents and teachers deliver meaningful education experiences. Now for a limited time you can buy a selection of Arduino Education products as a single kit. Perfect for all your homeschooling needs!

The Arduino Fundamentals exam with kit bundle includes an Arduino Starter Kit Single and access to the certification exam. Developed in consultation with interaction designers and electronic engineering professionals, the Arduino Fundamentals Certification exam assesses skills based upon exercises composed of practical tasks from the Arduino Starter Kit Single. Now, you can officially certify your knowledge of Arduino in the field of programming and electronics.

To obtain the certificate, you must answer 36 questions over a period of 75 minutes.

During the exam, you will encounter questions that test your knowledge in relation to the following eight main categories:

  1. Electricity: Understanding the concepts such as resistance, voltage, power, and capacitance and being able to measure and calculate them.

  2. Reading circuits and schematics: Understanding how electronics are represented visually and the being able to read and analyze electronic circuits.

  3. Arduino Software (IDE): Understanding the functionality of the Arduino development environment, serial communication, libraries, and errors.

  4. Arduino boards: Understanding the constitution and capabilities of an Arduino board and the functions of its different parts.

  5. Frequency and duty cycle: Understanding the concepts of pulse-width modulation (PWM) and frequency and being able to calculate duty cycle.

  6. Electronic components: Understanding how various electronic components such as LEDs, sensors, buttons, and motors work and how to use them in a circuit.

  7. Programming syntax and semantics: Understanding the building blocks of the Arduino programming language such as functions, arguments, variables, and loops.

  8. Programming logic: Ability to program various electronic components, read, analyze, and troubleshoot Arduino code.

This bundle includes the Arduino Starter Kit Single and a printed card that includes the exam activation code, which will be shipped and arrive together. The activation code can be used to unlock one (1) attempt at the Arduino Fundamentals exam. When you receive the code, you have six months to redeem it. After the code has been redeemed, you have one year to activate the exam, otherwise the code will become invalid.
