Arduino is an open-source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. Arduino boards are able to read inputs – light on a sensor, a finger on a button, or a Twitter message – and turn it into an output – activating a motor, turning on an LED, publishing something online. You can tell your board what to do by sending a set of instructions to the microcontroller on the board.

Info for teachers:

Arduino is intended for anyone making interactive projects, irrespective of age or school level.

A worldwide community of makers – students, hobbyists, artists, programmers, and professionals – has gathered around this open-source platform, their contributions have added up to an incredible amount of accessible knowledge that can be of great help to novices and experts alike: http://forum.arduino.cc/

There’s also a whole Arduino Education portal with a wealth of resources for users: https://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/Education

It is a recreational and interactive toy.

The toy enables playing a sort of treasure hunt based on audio and visual elements, by making use of RFID technology. The aim is to detect, with the help of a “magic wand”, each of the 7 little balls according to the sound asked for by the “base”. The shapes, materials and colours have been specifically designed to facilitate the child in his playing activity.

General decription:

MimicArm is easy to build, easy to use a programmable robot that grows with the child’s ability.

It suits everyone, from robot novice to veteran programmer. Thanks to the intuitive manual mode children as young as 5 are able to use mimicArm immediately. When the child is ready, the simple yet powerful programming software gradually eases you into programming concepts and the pre-programmed experiments start simple to guide you every step of the way. The experiments incrementally increase in complexity until you’re able to program using genuine C code, just like the professionals.

Info for teachers:

Suitable for children ages 7-99 years old. The teaching material was specifically designed for kids and teens ages 7-15. Kids and teens under the age of 14 years old should use robots under supervision.

Work with Robot kit improves problem solving, analytical skills, innovativeness and enhances teamwork skills.

By mixing and combining sensors you can replicate any technology that surrounds you, from smartphone to refrigerator. The Robot kit combines science with unlimited amount of creativity.

With the Lab everyone has the chance to be a doer instead of just a user. This is a fun and engaging way of learning programming while enhancing skills in problem solving, abstract thinking and creativity.

The Robot and Lab can be programmed with a computer and an USB cable using several different types of programming software.

You can use:

  1. RobboScratch visual programming interface. This is a ROBBO™ specific tool. See software for installation and usage.
  2. Arduino IDE. This is a more general tool for programming microprocessors. Uses text based programming and has a big community providing a lot of examples and tutorials.
  3. Snap4Arduino. This is also a visual programming interface that can be run inside the Chrome web browser. Requires Firmata. See instructions how to install for Windows without admin rights.
