Arduinos are open-source programmable micro-controllers, which can be used to make custom-made electronics projects. The Arduino micro-controller is programmable through its built-in IDE, and often used in combination with sensors (inputs) and actuators (outputs) to respectively measure and affect the environment in which the Arduino is placed. The Arduino environment is considered one of the go-to frameworks to start building programmable and interactive artefacts, because of its relatively easy learning curve, its extensive documentation, its countless code examples and large community supporting it.
This is our intermediate kit, which requires a little more experience with Arduino. We also have a basic Arduino kit, which is good for getting started with Arduino.
