Innovate, create, transform! Take your first steps towards building internet-connected objects and explore the Internet of Things with Arduino Education.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a giant network of connected devices that collect and share data from all over the world, and it’s changing the way we live, work, and study. Learning about the IoT requires students to understand and use different tools, technologies, and programming languages. With the Arduino Explore IoT Kit, you can get advanced high school and college students started with creating connected devices quickly and easily.
With the Arduino Explore IoT Kit, educators and students gain access to Arduino Create, an integrated online platform that enables you to write code, access content, configure boards, and share projects. Also included is access to online content with all the information and activities needed to learn the basics of IoT in one place.
The online platform contains:
- 10 step-by-step hands-on activities, covering the fundamentals of IoT:
- Algorithms and programming
- Data handling
- 10 open-ended challenges
The activities teach students how to collect and present data (for example, by building a weather station) and how to use these devices and services safely and securely (by creating a home security alarm), and the kit delivers more tools for students to design and make their own projects or tweak existing ones. Learning these skills now can also help their future career prospects.
All the activities adopt a learning-by-doing approach, through which students acquire knowledge step-by-step by constructing fully functional solutions, including experiments, challenges, and building meaningful applications.
Each kit contains one Arduino MKR 1010 Board, one MKR IoT Carrier, a collection of sensors and actuators, access to an online platform which will guide students through their first IoT experiments, specific online content for the teachers, as well as access to the Arduino Cloud to test all of the experiments. All student content has been correlated to Next Generation Science Standards.
The Arduino Explore IoT Kit serves up to three students and is delivered in a handy plastic, stackable bin for storage and years of reuse.
