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.

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.

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.

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.

Maker pHAT for Raspberry Pi

Maker pHAT is designed to be the same size as Raspberry Pi Zero board, it stacks perfectly on top of Rpi Zero with the four mounting holes aligned. (What is a HAT? Read this to know more) We do advise getting Raspberry Pi Zero WH (pre-solder header pin) for beginner because it is not an easy work to solder the 40-pin GPIO, don't forget you'll need to have the soldering tools too.



Maker pHAT is also compatible with Raspberry Pi 3B, 3B , 3A ,  and of course the latest 4B too. You just need to insert the 2x20 stacking header(included), as photo shows:



Maker pHAT is compatible with:

Maker pHAT is now Rev1.10:


Features:

  • Raspberry Pi Zero size, stack perfectly on to Pi Zero Series of SBC (Single Board Computer).
  • Compatible with standard size Raspberry Pi 3B/3B /4B1GB/4B2GB/4B4GB, medium size Raspberry Pi 3A and smaller size Raspberry Pi Zero/W/WH.
  • Standard Raspberry Pi GPIO footprint.
  • LED array for selected GPIO pins (GPIO 17, 18, 27, 22, 25, 12, 13, 19).
  • 3x onboard programmable push buttons (GPIO 21, 19 and 20, need to configure as input pull up).
  • Onboard active buzzer (GPIO 26).
  • Proper label for all GPIOs, including SPI, UART, I2C, 5V, 3.3V, and GND.
  • Utilize USB Micro-B socket for 5V input and USB to UART communication.
  • USB serial facilitated by the CH340, Rev1.10 uses FT231X as the USB to UART
  • Input voltage: USB 5V, from the computer, power bank or standard USB adapter.
  • PURPLE PCB!

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.
