What is MicroPython?

MicroPython is a full implementation of the Python 3 programming language that runs directly on embedded hardware like Raspberry Pi Pico. You get an interactive prompt (the REPL) to execute commands immediately via USB Serial, and a built-in filesystem. The Pico port of MicroPython includes modules for accessing low-level chip-specific hardware.

What is Raspberry Pi Pico?
Raspberry Pi Pico, a microcontroller board built on silicon designed here at Raspberry Pi.




Your official guide

Microcontrollers, like RP2040 at the heart of Raspberry PiPico, are computers stripped back to their bare essentials. You don’t use monitors or keyboards, but program them to take their input from, and send their output to the input/output pins. Using these programmable connections, you can light lights, make noises, send text to screens, and much more. In Get Started with MicroPython on Raspberry Pi Pico, you will learn how to use the beginner-friendly language MicroPython to write programs and connect up hardware to make your Raspberry Pi Pico interact with the world around it. Using these skills, you can create your own electro‑mechanical projects, whether for fun or to make your life easier.

Maker UNO Edu Kit (Arduino Compatible) (CT uno edu kit)

WHAT IS MAKER UNO?

 

 

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. 



With the conventional Arduino boards, students 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.



Specifications

 

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.
