What is Arduino?

The Arduino is an open-source electronics prototyping platform. Simply? It’s a great way to start your journey in the programming and coding field.


Who can use it?

It's intended for anyone interested in creating interactive objects or environments and is designed to be as flexible as possible to fit your project's needs.


What can you do with it?

The Starter Kit will guide through building 15 cool projects going from very simple to more complex project. These are the 15 projects included in the Starter’s Kit:

  • 01 GET TO KNOW YOUR TOOLS an introduction to the basics

  • 02 SPACESHIP INTERFACE design the control panel for your starship

  • 03 LOVE-O-METER measure how hot-blooded you are

  • 04 COLOR MIXING LAMP produce any color with a lamp that uses light as an input

  • 05 MOOD CUE clue people into how you're doing

  • 06 LIGHT THEREMIN create a musical instrument you play by waving your hands

  • 07 KEYBOARD INSTRUMENT play music and make some noise with this keyboard

  • 08 DIGITAL HOURGLASS a light-up hourglass that can stop you from working too much

  • 09 MOTORIZED PINWHEEL a colored wheel that will make your head spin

  • 10 ZOETROPE create a mechanical animation you can play forward or reverse

  • 11 CRYSTAL BALL a mystical tour to answer all your tough questions

  • 12 KNOCK LOCK tap out the secret code to open the door

  • 13 TOUCHY-FEEL 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 your devices!
