The Arduino 101 LabPack includes 10 complete Inventor’s Kits for Arduino 101 and 2 101 refill packs. The kit has everything you need including Arduino 101s, base plates, breadboards and all the parts needed for experiments. Each SIK also includes everything you need to complete 20 circuits that will teach you how to control and read the on-board and external sensors, create Android applications to control your Arduino 101, detect and analyze different sounds, and much more.
SparkFun packages everything educators need to get started with this platform in a number of varieties that fit different classroom settings and populations. The hardware boards, cables, and extra parts come pre-packaged. Examples and curriculum material are available from SparkFun and Arduino as well as from other educators involved in this growing educational movement.
The LabPacks are SparkFun’s classroom entry point. By combining our ProtoSnap, LilyPad, SparkFun Inventors Kits or Arduino Compatible through-hole soldering kits with support materials SparkFun brings all the power of the open-source community to the classroom.
The Arduino programming environment is a free download making getting started as simple as opening your kits, opening a programming window on your computer, and loading example code to the microcontroller. Arduino is a model for the open source movement. All the basics in this C-based language are laid out in simple examples that students, teachers, and parents can understand and work with right from the start by accessing the example files in the programming environment. The community support offered by Arduino is second to none. Hundreds of examples of code are available for free online, and wiring examples for hardware are equally as easy to find. The Arduino hardware and software are C-based, and because of this they are easy to link to internet-based applications and common programs such as Excel, Matlab, LabView, and even POP3 mail applications. Also, Arduino has a free companion language, Processing, which gives users the ability to create very friendly interfaces that can graph, create gaming options, and do a dizzying amount of data visualization.
Note: The Arduino 101 Lab Pack is only available for customers in the USA. If you are located in Canada, the EU, or other locations be sure to check out the Genuino 101 or its SIK instead. Additionally, this product may be delayed by 2-3 business days to verify shipping address. We will contact you after you place your order if we need anything.
