  • Additional devices depending on the levels.

Description:  
arduinoBundleKit

This is a hands-on workshop which teaches you basics in using an open-source platform to create your own electronic project.

This class is custom designed to tailor those interested in learning electronics from the ground up and looking forward to leveraging that knowledge to further their interest in robotics.

Storming Robots brings learning about electronics home via a game changer controller board kit - The Arduino® Sensors Kits Bundle.  This learning kit can be powered by Arduino compatible controller board.  This versatile kit comes with a wealth of 10 additional Grove® Arduino sensors all in one piece of the board.  But better yet, it is detachable and used in your other future projects. 

The whole goal is to equip you with the fundamental design principles of modularity and abstraction in a variety of contexts from electrical engineering and computer science. This should enable students to pursue more challenging robotics projects or any electronic DIY projects at home; as well as gaining a head-start in college.

Classes will start out with all pre-wired modules, i.e. no breadboard and jumper cables required.  So, parents, there is low risk of shorting out circuits and no high heat soldering. It is taking on plug-and-play model. As class advances, students will dig further into what is on each module and simulate the actual circuits using Autodesk’s TinkerCad free and online simulator.  From there, modules can be broken out and added as needed using the Grove system to complete fully functional projects. You will find more details in the learning outcome in each course level.
