Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between the lessons and open-ended projects?

Lessons provide a guided experience where the student is presented with a set of exercises, concepts and assembly instructions in a step-by-step manner with a set outcome.

Open-ended projects challenge the student to apply what they have learned in the lessons in a creative way. They are given a set of requirements that their project has to meet, but can decide themselves what they want to build and how to structure the process.

Which languages does the online platform support?

The Education Starter Kit is available in English, Chinese, Croatian, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, and Thai, with more languages coming soon. You can contact our support team for more information on specific languages.

What other materials would I need in order to use the kit?

All the electronics and learning materials are included in the kit. You will only need a computer running Windows 7 or higher, Linux, or macOS with a USB port and access to the Internet.

You will also be required to install the Arduino IDE to your computer in order to program the Arduino boards.

How do I access the online content?

Each kit comes with a unique activation code, stored under the lid of the packaging. When getting started with the kit, you will be asked to activate it by going to arduino.cc/education, clicking on “register kit”, entering the activation code and creating an Arduino account.

Once the kit is activated, you can access all the online content by logging in to the platform with your Arduino account.
