Arduino for Beginners with Grove
This course will introduce you to the Arduino by teaching you how to use all of the hardware that comes with the innovative Grove Beginner Kit for Arduino.
The Grove Beginner Kit consists of a single printed circuit board which contains an Arduino board and many common sensors and actuators.
This Kit is ideal for beginners who want to learn electronics and programming without worrying about wires and loose connections.
The main objective of this course is to teach you how to use all of the hardware that is included in the Grove Beginner Kit for Arduino in addition to a few extra components.
For each component, you will learn how to use it on its own, and then how to combine it with other components to create interesting gadgets and experiments.
The innovation of the Grove Beginner Kit is that while all of its hardware comes as distinct modules, they are already connected to the included Arduino via traces on the printed circuit board.
This means that you do not need to do any wiring at all.
The various sensors and actuators, even the bitmap display, are already connected and ready to use.
As a result, in this course, you will not need to do any wiring to use any of the components on the Grove Beginner Kit printed circuit board. This will save you a lot of time without affecting the quality of your learning.
Thanks to the Grove kit from Seeed Studio, you learning will be better because you will be able to concentrate on the software programming part, and on being creative.
This course is practical.
You will learn by completing a series of mini-projects.
Each mini-project is small enough so that you can complete it in a single session.
Most mini-projects guide you through a series of improvements so that you can gently learn new knowledge based on knowledge that you gained in previous steps.
This ensures that there will be no gaps in knowledge, and no frustration.
