Arduino and Autodesk have joined forces to launch new electronic and coding kits throughout the US, in the form of new Arduino Basic Kit. That has been created to provide the components and necessary instruction to create a range of different projects.
More than 30 components have been added into the 123D Circuits simulator and 15 step-by-step tutorials are available via the Project Ignite learning platform.
The Arduino Basic Kits includes and is priced at $84:
The only kit you need to get started with all the components to build simple projects and learn how to turn any idea into reality using Arduino.
– All the physical and digital components you need to build simple projects and learn how to turn an idea into reality using Arduino and Autodesk 123D Circuits.
– The digital simulations in 123D Circuits provide a unique experience to engage and learn about the power of smart objects .
– Exclusive online access to 15 step-by-step tutorials, through the Project Ignite learning platform, to make simple projects using components that let you control the physical world.
Samir Hanna, vice president and general manager, Consumer and 3D Printing, Autodesk explains :
Arduino is creating new opportunities for makers and educators to get hands on with coding and electronics. – Our collaboration with Arduino will enable our passionate community of users to unlock their creativity while building the skills to succeed in a technologically-focused world.
Massimo Banzi, co-founder of Arduino stated :
By collaborating with Autodesk on the Arduino Basic Kit we are showing that designing electronics is a great educational area for teachers. – By offering our tutorials in digital format instructors can involve students of all ages on interactive projects within Project Ignite platform.
