Ideal for students with little to no experience with STEM electronics.
Introduces students to Arduino IDE and micro-controller basics. Students
learn to build and control circuits in the Arduino environment using a Grove Starter Kit. The curriculum includes several experiments such as: control-
ling LEDs, sound, light and touch sensors, servomotor and RGB LCD screen.

An Arduino based micro-controller and discrete components are used to
build circuits on a breadboard. Building on skills acquired in module one,
students learn how to interface prototype circuits such as temperature and light sensing, DC motors, H-bridge motor and driver circuits, becoming
increasingly familiar with Arduino IDE programming.
After mastering skills learned in modules one and two students advance to
building a robotic platform using DC motors, wheels, H-bridge driver circuit,
battery pack, and reflectance sensors. Students learn how reflectance
sensors work, and how to interface, calibrate, and test them using the
Arduino IDE. Combining skills learned throughout the Innovate program, they
are able to build a mobile robotic platform.
