Weekend or Summer Project! Get a sweet Arduino starter kit and start making now!


Share the love!

With summer coming soon, many teachers are looking for a fun, challenging project this summer to totally up their game on hacking and make skills.  The Tech-Savvy Teachers recommend an Arduino, the inexpensive microcontroller.  What’s an Arduino, you ask?  Make Magazine has you covered:

What can you do with an Arduino?  The only limit is your imagination.  To get an idea if some of the amazing projects available, check out this page of projects from Instructables.  We love the LED projects and the tree-climbing robot!

Right now, Amazon has a sweet Arduino Starter Kit up for just $100 (and free shipping if you have Amazon Prime!).  The kit comes with all the hardware components you need for 15 different projects and the official Arduino Project Book.  Together, this kit will give you a great start to this amazing platform!

Do you have an amazing Arduino project from you or your students?  Hit us up in the comments below!

    Arduinos are awesome learning tools. They get students interested in electronics, communications, and input/output. Really helps with learning and understanding programming. In 2011 BYU’s Technology and Engineering Education program (preparing students to become CTE teachers) was using the Basic Stamp to learn and understand robotics, but the semester before I graduated I helped develop a curriculum to switch over to the Arduino which they did in 2012.
