Arduino has become much more than just a tool for making, tinkering, and exploring physical and digital interaction, but an entire ecosystem supporting students across all disciplines. Arduino Education is committed to empowering educators with the necessary hardware and software tools to create a more hands-on, innovative learning experience.
CTC is Arduino’s one-of-a-kind STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) program for upper secondary education. Students are introduced to the foundations of programming, electronics, and mechanics through a series of playful, well-documented projects and easy-to-assemble experiments.

CTC is tailored for high school students ages 13 to 17. The program has been designed for teachers, instructors, and other professionals working in the education field.
CTC is an immersive educational experience consisting of an online platform, video tutorials, detailed documentation with step-by-step instructions, a classroom toolbox with more than 20 hands-on experiments based on themed modules. CTC is currently available in English, Spanish, and Italian.
As you’ve come to know with our consumer products, CTC participants will be able to take advantage of the ever-growing Arduino community, with real feedback from real users. Teachers and instructors can receive support throughout their activities from other facilitators and their peers.
CTC has already been adopted by 536 schools in three countries—that’s more than 1,200 teachers and 15,000 students, with the number growing each year!
I really liked to create a game from scratch that people can play and enjoy.

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
CTC has been successfully implemented in the Region of Castilla La Mancha and Madrid. Funding thus far has come from public institutions like Fundación Telefónica, the Region of Castilla La Mancha, and Fundación La Caixa. Together they have sponsored more than 300 schools. During 2014, the program expanded to Catalonia, Spain, Skåne, Sweden, and Ecuador.
