Anyone looking to learn more about electronics and programming micro controllers or mini PCs using C/C++, Verilog, VHDL and more. May be worth giving a new piece of hardware called the Striver STEM more investigation.++
Created by Jason KJ Teo based in Toronto Canada, the pocket hardware is a compact and rugged two processor unit which has been designed specifically for STEM education. Watch the demonstration video below to learn more about this small learning device which is now available to backfire Kickstarter.
The STRIVER STEM is an electronic product for STEM education. It measures approximately 2 by 2 inch (5 by 5 centimeters) and fits snugly into the palm of your hand. The casing is 3D printed and has a vibrant color. The product is portable and fit easily into bag of any size.
Supports C/C++, Verilog and VHDL programming languages. More software support is expected. Programming is done via single USB cable that connects to the computer. The STRIVER STEM is compatible with 3 softwares: Arduino, Lattice Diamond and MIT Scratch.++
The basics of a program such as the structure, pinout mappings, loop, statements (and more) may be grasped with NO CODING. In fact, using “LEGO” style visual method of dragging blocks, snapping them together and clicking icon to run the program is intuitive and fun. See demonstration video how visual programming is done with the STRIVER STEM learning kit. We are using the Snap4Arduino visual programming software in this demo. This is a modification from the Snap! visual programming software and similar to MIT Scratch software.
