Education Kit offers hands-on training in electronics

The Arduino CTC 101 Education Kit, a complete e-learning platform enabling young students to learn the fundamentals of electronics, programming and mechatronics is available at RS Components. The kit has been designed for teachers and other instructors working in education and is specially tailored for the 13 to 17 age group at secondary schools.

The kit supports programming and mechatronics with five themed modules and offers more than 25 hands-on experiments.

All the parts in the kit are completely reusable, thereby enabling experiments to be reconfigured in endless combinations and further developed for more advanced students and projects.

Each CTC 101 kit includes enough electronic components for a class of 24 students and a teacher. It includes: six Genuino 101 programmable microcontroller boards; six Arduino Education Shields; a set of sensors and actuators; component modules; breadboards; a wide selection of electronic components, connectors and wires; plus other elements such as servo motors, USB cable, wheels and bearings, batteries and power modules.

The CTC, or Creative Technologies in the Classroom, is Arduino’s one-of-a-kind STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics) programme for upper secondary education. The Arduino Education programme was set up to empower educators with the necessary hardware and software tools to create a more hands-on and innovative learning experience.

Students are introduced to the fundamentals of programming, electronics and mechatronics through a series of well-documented projects and easy-to-assemble experiments.

Training for the programme is available online and through a combination of recorded lectures, support materials and Q&A forums, via Arduino.

Initially, the CTC 101 is exclusively available via RS and is shipping now in EMEA and Asia Pacific regions.
