We're really excited about the MicroView -- a new Arduino compatible board with an integrated display! Check out why...
Arduino Day was pretty successful. Unfortunately, everything is broken.
Today is the day - check out our great Arduino deals!
Check out this Arduino based synthesizer projet
A new Arduino offering from Intel, and another Robotics 101 video.
A simple search on-line for "Arduino resources" results in "About 3,920,000 results (0.30 seconds)," but if you're just starting out and interested in getting Arduino into your classroom - this can be terribly overwhelming. So - here's a list of some of the sites I like to use.
HacKidemia is a global organization that runs hands-on STEM workshops for kids in more than 25 countries around the world with 8000 children and 400 mentors. They were asked to bring the project to Africa and launched an indiegogo campaign two months ago: http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/afrimakers. The main intention is to enable African makers -- kids in particular -- to use making and prototyping for solving local challenges like access to clean water, energy and information. SparkFun has donated the materials for 7 maker boxes - enough to support the initial campaign goal to equip each of the 7 hubs with a set of Arduino's, sensors, books, and tools.
First impressions of the Arduino/Intel-hybrid Galileo board - an x86 Arduino! - a small example project, and our likes and dislikes.
In October, a team of Sparkfunions were blessed with the opportunity to head to our 50th state to teach Arduino to kids, teachers, and makers on the islands of Hawaii.
LED panels, a wireless access point for your Arduino, and more! Check out what we have for this week.
Intro to Arduino Class: Streaming Live This Weekend!
Visual programming languages are a unique way to introduce tyro programmers to thinking like a programmer. Here are some of the great tools we've discovered that enable visual programming for Arduino.
One of the largest public school entities in the country kicked off a pilot program to integrate Software Engineering in grades 6 and 9 for 20 different schools. SparkFun was chosen to support their foray into embedded electronics, arduino, and eTextiles.
SparkFun EDU ran a 3 day short course for educators with Bollman tech building, making, and engineering using Arduino and other tools with microcontrollers.
My experience researching the HexBright; an open source, Arduino programmable flashlight.
Join us for a great class on the basics of using Arduino.
So you want to experiment with Arduino? Check this out.
Come check out the Boulder Arduino Hackfest! It's going to be awesome.
Connect your Arduino Ethernet to the Pachube API to display and log data on the web.
Check out this new tutorial about all the types of data you might deal with while using Arduino.
