The following lists contain the parts and tools necessary to complete the Grove For Busy People and Grove for Arduino Makers courses.
In the Grove system, modules are easy to swap between projects. This way, you can reuse the modules in this list in future projects.
The items in these lists are provided in an effort to make it easier for our students to find the parts and tools they need. While we take care to find reliable sellers, we cannot be responsible for problems in their supply chain or fulfilment. Sellers may run out of stock at any time, or shipments may be lost in transit. For issues like these, or for warranty claims, please contact the seller directly.
Most of the components listed below are available from Seeed, the maker of the Grove System. Your order will be processed by Seeed, not Tech Explorations.
A couple of optional items are available from Amazon. These orders will be processed by the Amazon retailers.
If you do not live in the US, UK or Germany, or the Amazon stores that we provide links to below do not deliver to your location, consider using a freight forwarding service like Shipito. You can ship your shopping to them, and they will forward to you, anywhere in the world. This is useful in case, for at least some of the items in your shopping list, Amazon will not ship to addresses outside the US. To the best of my knowledge, Seeed will ship anywhere in the world directly, so you do not need a forwarding service.
