Why this kit?
As you may know, there are many electronics/robotics starter kits based on Arduino with similar characteristics and prices so the question here is:Why should I buy this kit and not any other? In order to answer this question we must focus on two points: the hardware and the software:
- Hardware: the Make it! Pro kit includes the exclusive S4A prototyping board. The S4A board incorporates a lot of interfaces and input/output connectors that will allow you to prototype and create many projects without using cables and breadboards. Breadboards and wiring are known to be very annoying for people who are starting in the maker world, but with the S4A prototyping board you can almost get rid of them.
- Software: the Make it! Pro kit and the S4A prototyping board is fully integrated with Scratch for Arduino software based on the acclaimed and renowned Scratch software developed at MIT. The use of Scratch for Arduino software offers the possibily of creating projects very easily without previous programming knowledge by using a ‘Scratch-style’ blocks system. It also allows people to build their own projects without prior technical knowledge.
Our team has created this kit for those -adults and children- who start learning about electronics, robotics and microcontrollers. The educational approach is our main target and that is the reason why the Make it! Pro kit and the S4A prototyping board is already being used in different middle schools, high schools and vocational education centers.
