Bring the power of the Arduino MKR1000 to the classroom with MATLAB and Simulink. The Arduino Engineering Kit is the ideal solution for university and advanced students, providing a state-of-the-art, hands-on incorporation of Arduino technology in an educational setting.
The kit is primarily for three types of users: students learning about engineering, professors teaching engineering, and makers with an interest or background in engineering.
The kit includes three cutting-edge Arduino-based projects that teach students fundamental engineering concepts, key aspects of mechatronics, and MATLAB and Simulink programming. These projects will challenge them intellectually and help them develop physical engineering skills — plus they’re just fun to do.
The kit is sold in a hard plastic, stackable tool box for storage and years of reuse. Inside the box is an easy-to-use Arduino MKR1000 Board, several customized parts, and a complete set of electrical and mechanical components needed to assemble all three projects.
In addition to the state-of-the-art, high-quality, open-source hardware provided, after registering online, each student will have access to a dedicated e-learning platform and other learning materials. Additionally, they are granted a one-year individual license for MATLAB and Simulink. This provides them with hands-on experience in system modeling and embedded algorithm development.
The Arduino Engineering Kit is built on its own education learning management system with step-by-step instructions and lessons. The content of this kit is divided into six chapters, featuring a short introduction, a getting-started guide for the tools that will be used, a concepts section, and, finally, the projects themselves. Users will receive access to the online platform for one year and can purchase additional licenses to extend platform access.
