Maker UNO: Simplifying Arduino for Education (Maker Uno education)
Description:

Maker UNO is an Arduino Compatible board specially designed to simplify building your projects:

  •     Coding & Electronics made easy with built-in:{ 12x LEDs; 1x buzzer; 1x button; }
  •     Troubleshooting made easy with LED indicators.

Students/Makers can skip the hassle of constructing the basic electronic circuit which is boring and
time-consuming. Although it is equally important to learn about basic electronics, it can always come later after they have experienced how easy it is to create an awesome project. Start with fun and excitement. Start coding right away and see your board lights up and plays the melody with the press of a button.

For experienced makers, this is also useful to quickly test your code without having to connect any other devices.

With the conventional Arduino boards, makers also face another common problem - difficulty in troubleshooting their circuit. This is because when it doesn't work, we do not know whether the problem is due to wire connection or coding.


With Maker UNO, the problem is solved! Not only do the onboard LEDs work as outputs, they can also act as indicators, clearly showing what's happening on that pin. When the pin is used as input, you can clearly see whether the signal is received by just looking at changes on the LEDs. 

Additional features:

One of the brilliant features of the official Arduino Uno is the label printed on its pin headers. It saves us a lot of time when we want to connect the I/O pins to the external circuit. So, we include a set of these label stickers for pin headers in each of the Maker UNO! (Please note that you need to peel off the stickers and stick them on your Maker UNO by yourself)



Students always get their boards mixed up. With Maker UNO, you can write your name on the board. Problem solved!



Maker UNO uses the common Micro USB cable which is basically everywhere.



Don't throw your box away! There is a small opening on the box for you to plug the USB cable so that you can keep your Maker UNO safely in the original box, no additional casing required.



Maker UNO is fully compatible with Arduino. You can share the same library and code. We put in 12x LEDs, 1x piezo buzzer and 1x programmable button on the Maker UNO. We have removed the DC jack power input socket as most of the boards used in classes are powered using USB. We have also replaced the ATmega16u2 with CH340 to bring down the cost.

    Maker UNO Edu Kit (Arduino Compatible) (CT uno edu kit)
    The Typical Problem Faced By Teachers In Conducting Arduino Classes

    1. Most of the students do not have basic knowledge in electronics.



    2. They do not understand the circuit diagram at the beginning of the Arduino lesson. They will spend a substantial amount of time just to connect the wires and troubleshoot the connections.

    3. It's a mess after every class. The teacher has to sort and make sure nothing is missing. What a tedious job and a waste of time! 

    Students can skip the hassle of constructing the basic electronic circuit which is boring and time consuming. Although it is equally important for them to learn about basic electronics, it can always come later after they have experienced how easy it is to create awesome project. Start with fun and excitement. Start coding right away and see your board lights up and plays melody with the press of a button.

    Maker pHAT: Simplifying Raspberry Pi for Education (CT pHAT)
    Check the review by MagPi (the official Magazine of Raspberry Pi) of Maker pHAT:



    The Typical Problem Faced by Beginners in Learning Electronics on Raspberry Pi 

    Raspberry Pi aims to bring the power of computing and digital making to the masses. It is being used by many educators, makers, and also engineers. Yet, if you are a newbie learning electronics, you might face some of these constraints:
    • Hard to get started without additional devices (monitor, keyboard, and mouse). Beginners will either need to use additional devices or follow many steps just to get started. This may confuse them. For techies that want to know why, this is because it lacks an onboard USB to UART communication for your computer to get the IP address for SSH (headless), or to kick start configuration directly.
    • Hard to get started with electronics. It doesn't come with any inputs or outputs, you will need to connect additional accessories to use it. Most beginners do not have basic knowledge of electronics. They will have a problem to understand the circuit diagram and connections needed when they first started learning. They will spend a substantial amount of time just to connect the wires and troubleshoot the connections.
    • Hard to troubleshoot the GPIO. With just the raspberry pi, beginners face a common problem when learning electronics- difficulty in troubleshooting their circuit. This is because when it doesn't work, we do not know whether the problem is due to wire connection or coding.
    • Access to GPIO is kind of difficult. There is no label on the pins, you need to search online to get the designated pin and know which pin to connect. For beginners, this definitely will make it harder for them to make the connection correctly. 
    • No easy way to properly shutdown using a switch. There is no programmable push button to enable proper shutdown through hardware. If the beginner turns off the power without properly shutting it down, the raspberry pi may not work the next time. 

    Introducing Our Solution: Maker pHAT 

    Maker pHAT solves all these. It is designed to:

    • Simplify to get started with Raspberry Pi without additional monitor, keyboard or mouse (Headless). Go headless with a few simple steps as it enables users to remote access Raspberry Pi through serial.
    • Simplify learning electronics. Beginners can skip the hassle of constructing the basic electronic circuit which is boring and time-consuming. Although it is equally important for them to learn about basic electronics, it can always come later after they have experienced how easy it is to create an awesome project. Start with fun and excitement. Start coding right away and see your board lights up and plays sound with the press of a button. It comes with onboard LEDs, pushbuttons, and a buzzer to easily learn how to control input and output. No messy wiring needed and no additional components needed.
    • Simplify troubleshooting and prototyping. Not only do the onboard LEDs work as outputs, but they can also act as indicators, clearly showing what's happening on that pin. When the pin is used as input, you can clearly see whether the signal is received by just looking at changes on the LEDs. The pre-soldered header pins come with nice labels. This helps the user to easily connect inputs and outputs to the right pins. This will further assist them in interfacing with sensors and actuators.
    • Simplify proper shutdown using pushbutton. You can easily follow the steps and choose one of the pushbuttons as the power button to properly shutdown the Raspberry Pi. Just press the button and it will shut down.
