The ibtibot Discovery Kit is a ‘plug and play’ module based kit that contains a selection of Arduino compatible, input and output sensors designed to focus learner attention on programming and real-world sensor operations.
Each module is comprised of a series of components, securely mounted on a board and ready to be ‘plugged’ in to complete a specific task.
The concept at this stage is for the learner to be focussed on the sensor and actuator interface and not the components involved in the module construction.
The Discovery Kit, comes with a ‘How to Use Guide’ complete with a variety of project based activities to help the learner master the Arduino platform and the sensor – actuator relationships.
Once the learner has mastered this knowledge, they will have a palette of software and circuits that can be used to explore the world of electronics, build projects and control their physical world.
The ibtibot Discovery Kit comes in a compact snap lock case with defined sections for all the contents, ensuring integrity and security. The sturdy grey and red case is clearly labelled with visuals and specifications and is complemented by a wraparound sleeve that presents a professionally packaged product. Designed to introduce the learner to electronics, the Discovery Kit provides the opportunity for the learner to work through the basics towards more complex tasks, through hands on activities. The combination of the components, the packaging and the documentation along with clear labelling and a place for everything, makes this the perfect kit for the novice taking their first steps into the world of sensing and interactive electronics.
The Discovery Kit contains an Arduino Leonardo board, IO expansion shield, 11 input sensors and 7 output actuators, all with easy to plug in capabilities and all fully compatible with the Arduino microcontroller. The ‘How to Use Guide‘ includes clear step by step instructions, multiple images and diagrams to help Arduino beginners to understand Arduino programming and to complete the suggested projects. With the Discovery Kit, building a project is as simple as stacking blocks.
