Teaching, Inspiring and Empowering!

Arduino Education is a dedicated team formed by education experts, content developers, engineers and interaction designers from all around the world. We are focused on developing the next generation of STEAM systems and supporting the needs of educators and students throughout the educational journey.

The Education Team And Mission

Arduino is on a mission to make technology accessible to everyone, and into the hands of every student and educator. To make this possible, we have created Arduino Education: a dedicated global team formed by education experts, content developers, engineers, and interaction designers.

Arduino Education is focused on creating the next generation of STEAM programs — integrating Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math — while supporting the needs of teachers and students throughout the educational journey.

Current Use Cases

Educational institutions use Arduino as a resource to assist in educating their students on a wide variety of topics, using several methods.

Develop: Arduino is widely adopted at post-secondary education (e.g., universities, colleges, research institutes) in the fields of engineering, Internet of Things, robotics, art, and design.

Teach and Learn: Many secondary schools use Arduino in innovative programs for cross-curriculum studies.

Play: Primary schools use toys embedded with Arduino technology to introduce physical learning, logic, building skills, and problem solving.

Arduino Education offers solutions for the classroom, kits, bundles and boards with learning paths for individual and collaborative educational approaches. Learners explore Arduino in a hands-on, constructive way as they work through the kits and explore the creative capabilities of each board. Whether you’re a teacher new to electronics and wanting to introduce physical computing and computational thinking to your lesson plan, a university professor skilled in electronics, or a postgraduate researcher, we have an Arduino kit or board perfect for you. Take a look at our catalogue and choose what best suits your needs.

Solutions for the Classroom

Source: Intel IQ

Back in 2012, I was given the challenge of bringing project-based learning to my first group of upper secondary schools in Spain. I realised at the time that almost no one was addressing the needs of educators when introducing curriculum. Therefore, I decided that we had to put educators at the center of our concept and help them find creative ways to use technology in the classroom. Arduino Education is not just about making interesting projects with students, it is also about getting acquainted with developing technologies and new methods of teaching.

Starter Kit Classroom Pack

The ideal package for a class that introduces programming and electronics through fun and engaging interactive projects.

The Arduino Starter Kit Classroom Pack is a bundled solution, containing six of the popular Arduino Starter Kits.

This Classroom 6-Pack is for a classroom of at least twelve students — the recommended ratio is two students per kit — and intended for use starting from middle school teachers onwards, looking for an extensive educational solution for learning how to use the Arduino platform.

Each kit contains an Arduino Uno Rev 3 board, a collection of sensors and actuators, and — most important — a guide book which will help students and teachers to take their first steps into the world of electronics, with interactive and sensing objects.

A 30-day trial access to the Chromebook Education app is also included.

Developed in partnership with Google, the Arduino Science Kit Physics Lab is an Arduino-based physics lab, fully compatible with Google Science Journal available on Android

Have Fun and Learn at the Arduino Science Fairground!

Experiment with forces, motion, magnetism, and conductivity. Students will make their own hypothesis like real scientists, then check their assumptions, and log data thanks to Google’s Science Journal — a digital notebook for conducting and documenting science experiments in real-time using the smart capabilities of mobile devices.

No coding experience required! Enjoy this new series of plug & play projects.

Recommended for 2 students to work together , the Arduino Science Kit includes materials to run 9 exciting physics experiments based on the following subject areas and topics:

- Electromagnetism and Thermodynamics
- Kinetics and Kinematics

Arduino CTC GO!

CTC GO! is an educational program consisting of several modules that can be combined to teach different STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) subjects. These modules provide educators with a complete cross curricular program, where students will initially learn how to use technology as a tool, before applying that knowledge to specific STEAM subjects and topics.

Core Module

With the Core Module you will go through the foundations of CTC and build 8 exciting projects based on teamwork and learning by doing activities.

Arduino CTC 101

Creative Technologies in the Classroom 101 is the flagship Arduino educational program for schools.

Arduino CTC 101 is a modular STEAM program consisting of a toolbox with 26 projects and easy-to-assemble experiments, an online platform, and guided training/support for educators.

The program, tailored for ages 13 to 17, has 5 themed modules and introduces students to the foundations of programming and basic coding, Arduino boards and digital signals, analog signals and serial communication, robotics, power systems, motors, wireless communication via Bluetooth and advanced sensors.

Testimonials

CTC is one of our best educational activities and makes us especially proud on account of its potential for teacher training, student motivation, and transformation of the society in which we live.
- Javier Hidalgo, Head of Exhibitions and Programmes, la Caixa Foundation

It was new, interesting and educational. The students appreciated Arduino, and the interest is wide among students and teachers alike.
- Teacher, CTC Kreatech, Skåne Sweden

CTC It's a great way to get started with programming, electronics, and automation — this program is so entertaining and fun that it does not seem like you're taking a class — all classes should be as interactive and constructive just like these!
- Joel Borja Tomàs, Student, Institut de Tecnificació, Amposta, Spain

Arduino Certification Program

Arduino has a proven track record of developing successful educational products: The Starter Kit Classroom Pack , the Science Kit Physics Lab , CTC Go! , Creative Technologies in the Classroom (CTC 101) , and the Arduino Engineering Kit (AEK) , have all received positive feedback from individuals and educational organizations implementing them in their curricula. Arduino Education takes great pride in applying pedagogical values to the technology developed under our brand, to meet the demands of an innovative industry.

The Arduino Certification Program (ACP) is an Arduino initiative to officially certify Arduino users, and confirm their expertise in key areas, it has been developed in response from request by the Arduino community. Many users highlighted the need to possess a document confirming their level of knowledge on Arduino, that could, for example, be referred to in a resume for academic or professional purposes.

The Arduino Certification program is hosted online and involves proficiency exams on the Arduino environment. There are three tiers of certification available as follows:

<
  • Enthusiasts (Fundamentals Certification)
  • Educators (coming soon)
  • Professionals (coming soon)
>
Arduino Fundamentals Certification

For enthusiasts, the Arduino Fundamentals Certification is the first tier in the Arduino Certification Program. It validates your skills and improves your personal profile by showcasing your knowledge in the field of programming and electronics, relating to Arduino.

Developed in consultation with interaction designers and electronic engineering professionals as well as in regards to leading technology curriculum, the Arduino Fundamentals Certification exam assesses skills based upon exercises comprised of practical tasks from the Arduino Starter Kit .
