Fun items to add onto an SIK based class by LC

Here are some basic items you can add onto a SparkFun Inventor’s Kit based class. You can reach much further once you understand more than just Serial Communication basics, (think GPS, wireless, etc…) but this is a good place to start when ordering extras to have on standby for your students to play with once they understand the basics.

Bear in mind that you will need to order the correct number of Arduino Stackable Header kits to correspond to the number of shields you buy.

Also- remember that you don’t necessarily need to have experience with each of these items, just the ability to point students in the direction of knowledge cough, RTFM, cough and the patience to help them troubleshoot. A lot of times you will find that encouraging students to share their knowledge will not only ease your workload as an educator, but it can also help with classroom management.
