YouTube : Easy way to start with Arduino



Learning new things is always difficult, and it's the same for Arduino beginners.  You need to learn hardware knowledge, programming code, need to know connection methods of various complex interfaces, and even need to master welding skills. Tons of things are needed before you actually start learning Arduino programming. Well, we feel your pain, so we carry the Grove Beginner Kit for Arduino® from SeeedStudio, it is one of the simplest ways to get started with Arduino.



Unlike most kits, the Grove Beginner Kit for Arduino is an all-in-one kit, no breadboard, no soldering, even no wiring is needed. The kit cuts all those muss and fuss, aiming to give you the best experience, you only need to focus on coding and Arduino Learning. The kit is powered by one Arduino compatible Board (Seeeduino Lotus) together with 10 additional Grove Arduino sensors all in one piece of the board. 



All the modules have been connected to the Seeeduino(Microcontroller) through the PCB stamp holes so no Grove cables are needed to connect. This is perfect for educational fields where frustrating wiring and soldering is no longer needed.



Of course, you can also take the modules out and use Grove cables to connect the modules. You can build any Arduino project you like with this Grove Beginner Kit For Arduino®.





What is Grove?

Grove makes it easier to connect, experiment, and simplify the prototyping process. No jumpers or soldering required. We have developed more than 300 Grove modules, covering a wide range of applications that can fulfill a variety of needs. Not only are these open hardware, but also have open-source software.

Note: SeeedStudio also prepared example code and software libraries to help you running 12 different demos in just a few lines of code. Check this Wiki to get started now!

Tracking Robot Car Electronic DIY Kit With Reduction Motor (DIY track robot kit)
Description:

This kit introduces quite a few electronic principles, its fun and not difficult to build. This is a self-build DIY smart tracking robot car kit. It is an introductory electronic kit designed to help kids, electronic enthusiasts, and novices learn about basic electronic knowledge like soldering and simple circuits(photoelectric sensor circuit, voltage comparator, motor driving,ir sensors etc.) The smart kit is designed based on the principle of infrared sensor and light reflectivity difference when the light emitting on the white and black items




The assembly steps:


Step 1: Welding circuit

Soldering part is simpler, welding sequence according to the principle of component level from low to high, the first welding eight resistance, is important to use multimeter to confirm resistance is correct, D4, D5 R13 R14 can temporarily not welding, integrated circuit chips can temporarily not inserted

Step 2: Mechanical assembly

The red line is connected to the 3V positive power supply, the yellow line grounding, excess wire an be used for motor wire.

Step 3: The installation of a photoelectric circuit

Photosensitive resistance and light-emitting diodes (note polarity) is reverse-mounted on the PCB, and the ground distance is about 5 mm, both photosensitive resistance and light-emitting diodes are 5 mm distance. Finally, you can power test.

Step 4: Vehicle debugging

The right direction is along the universal wheel direction, if you press and hold the left photoresistor, the wheels on the right side of the car should be rotated. Press and hold the right photoresistor, the wheels on the left side of the car should be rotated, if the car driving back, can also exchange the wiring of two motors, if the one side normal and the other side back up, as long as you can swap wiring of back side.

Note: We don't supply any manuals please note this before you buy it.

Kitronik LAB:bit educational platform for BBC micro:bit (Kitronik LAB:bit)
Crack the code with the Kitronik LAB:bit, the all-in-one laboratory for delivering KS2 computing in the classroom (7 - 10-year-olds).

Description:

The Kitronik LAB:bit for the BBC micro:bit offers a super fun way for children to learn about coding in an engaging and hands-on way. It has been specifically designed for the classroom for KS2 computing and is backed by online MakeCode tutorials, simplified custom blocks, and a detailed getting started guide. Supplied in the box are; a battery holder (3 x AA),  a wheel and tyre for the motor, and the detailed easy to follow guide. 

The board is absolutely packed with an impressive array of features and devices for easy delivery of fun and informative lessons. These include; a motor, ultrasonic distance sensor, 2 x large user-assignable tactile buttons (with indicator LEDs), a microphone, speaker (with volume control), 7 programmable ZIP LEDs(in an arc), A user-assignable potentiometer control, 2 x sets of traffic light LEDs, and LEDs arranged in a dice formation (that can also be used for displaying digits).

The board also features; an edge connector for the micro:bit to slot into, a pre-fitted protective acrylic cover, clip-able pads for attaching an additional motor, 2 x clip-able pads for attaching further buttons/switches, Colour changing power indication LEDS, a cutaway for easy reset button access, and pre-fitted anti-slip rubber feet.

This all in one laboratory environment ships with a detailed getting started guide, filled with step by step information that can easily be followed by either teacher or pupil. The guide starts with an introduction to using a micro:bit and the MakeCode editor, with each explained in detail. This is then followed by instructions for fitting the wheel to the motor. Each area of the board is explained in detail, complete with code examples for each. As with the previous sections, this part of the booklet has been designed so that it can be used by teachers and pupils.

Coding is done via the MakeCode blocks editor. Kitronik has produced custom blocks for the editor to ensure that they are suitable for use with pupils aged 7-10. Each area of the board has its own blocks that all slot together in intuitive ways and they have been organised into subdirectories by type. For example, all of the blocks for the motor are in one submenu and blocks for the traffic lights are in another submenu. There is also an 'other' submenu that contains blocks for the more advanced/older students who require an extra level of challenge. Detailed information on how to add these blocks to MakeCode can be found in the Getting start guide that ships with LAB:bit.

Power is provided via the provided 3 x AA battery holder into the DC barrel jack input. The board has been rated for a maximum of 6V and a minimum of 3V, 3V - 4.5V recommended. The onboard power regulation circuit provides power to the board and to the micro:bit, removing the need to power the micro:bit separately. LAB:bit has an inbuilt polarity protection circuit for the DC input. There is a Colour changing power LED to indicate when the battery voltage is getting low.


Note:

  • No soldering.
  • Minimal mechanical assembly required. The wheel needs to have the tyre fitted and then to be fitted to the onboard motor.
  • This kit is not supplied with a micro:bit. The micro:bit is available separately here.
