Description

The Arduino Starter Kit Classroom Pack contains six of the popular Arduino Starter Kits. Developed to give middle school students an introduction to integrated electronics, circuitry, and coding, the starter kit offers an extensive educational solution for learning how to use the beloved Arduino platform. This pack serves up to 12 students with a recommended student-to-set ratio of 2:1.

Each kit contains an Arduino UNO Rev 3 Board, a collection of sensors and actuators, and, most important, a guide book that will help students and teachers to take their first steps into the world of electronics with interactive and sensing objects. A 30-day trial access to the Arduino Create Chrome App for Education is also included.

Each Arduino Starter Kit contains a full color 170-page book with instructions for 15 projects:

  1. Get to Know Your Tools: An introduction to the basics.

  2. Spaceship Interface: Design a control panel for a starship.

  3. Love-O-Meter: Measure how hot-blooded you are.

  4. Color Mixing Lamp: Produce any color with a lamp that uses light as an input.

  5. Mood Cue: Let people know how you’re doing.

  6. Light Theremin: Create a musical instrument you play by waving your hands.

  7. Keyboard Instrument: Play music with this keyboard.

  8. Digital Hourglass: A light-up hourglass that can stop you from working too much.

  9. Motorized Pinwheel: A colored wheel that will make your head spin.

  10. Zoetrope: Create a mechanical animation you can play – and play in reverse.

  11. Crystal Ball: A mystical tour to answer all your tough questions.

  12. Knock Lock: Unlock a door with a secret knock.

  13. Touchy-Feely Lamp: A lamp that responds to your touch.

  14. Tweak the Arduino Logo: Control your personal computer from your Arduino.

  15. Hacking Buttons: Create a master control for all of your devices!

“The Arduino Student Kit offers engaging coding experiences for a wide range of students, regardless of their level of experience. The hands-on kit provides opportunities for independence and growth by teaching introductory students the basics of electronics while also enabling more experienced students to create their own projects. The illustrations in the project book make the kit easy to use, and working with the various components to create different projects is just plain fun! I would recommend this kit to any educator or parent wanting to develop students’ coding skills, whether in the classroom, remotely, or at home. ”

– Erin Barr, Teacher VI, Montana School for the Deaf & Blind, Great Falls, MT

“The product packaging for the Arduino Starter Kit is well-thought-out, labeled, and organized. When you are unboxing your materials, I would recommend having space dedicated to the project itself as it requires many small parts. Completing the projects was straightforward and easy to understand while using the included project book. The projects are easy to follow without much background in electronics, and they cover many topics and skills. Overall, I would recommend these kits for any student or parent wanting to learn the basics of coding and electronics from home. As a parent and a teacher who had to teach both virtually and at home, these kits would make a great addition to both my STEM lesson plans and my homeschooling experience. They require very little adult input past the organization phase. Overall I had a very positive experience.”
