Arduino ​Training and books for Teachers

STEM education is a creative platform on which teachers can build powerful educational experiences for their students. 

Projects are at the heart of STEM education.

The Arduino is perfect for learning a variety of topics, like programming, electronics, engineering, and art.

Want to learn Arduino quickly? Need to get a deeper understanding of Maker Education?

We can help.

​One-on-one training

​Arduino Bootcamp for Teachers and Trainers

​Our assisted training program for teachers who want to use the Arduino as part of their STEM curriculum, or as a stand-alone topic.

​If you are planning to teach Arduino, electronics and programming to your students or children, this Arduino Bootcamp may be the most effective way to train yourself so you can become a confident Mentor to your students..

We offer you an obligation-free online meeting during which we can discuss your teaching needs and determine if this fast-paced training program is appropriate for you. During this meeting, we can also give you a detailed tour of the course, and answer any questions you may have.

As a graduate of the Arduino Bootcamp you will also receive a copy of the Classroom resources.

​Graduated from the Arduino Bootcamp? Create something unique with the Bootcamp Extension Project

​As a graduate of our Arduino Bootcamp for Teachers training proram, you have the option to continue your training.

The Extension Project is an opportunity to tackle a custom project. This project can be anything you can imagine. For example:

1. You can ​extend​ the Bootcamp curriculum to include custom lessons.
2. You can develop custom experiments, based on the Arduino, that you can use in your class.
3. You can develop ​tools that you can use in ​your science, history or geography classes​.

  • ​Agreed start and end date. You are welcome to discuss your scheduling requirements with us.
  • ​Four 1-hour meetings to help you complete your project.
  • ​A final graduation meeting.
  • ​Daily collaboration and priority assistance.
  • ​Use our project management tool to guide your work.
  • ​Create a custom Arduino project, with our assistance.
  • ​Implement ​teaching tools and methodologies that address specific requirements in your classroom

​Arduino Bootcamp for Teachers and Trainers Extension Project

​A book about learning in a high-tech society and how the roles of teachers and students are changing

​Conventional education is struggling to provide the learning environment necessary to help raise the future innovators, problem solvers, and entrepreneurs that advanced societies need. While efforts to transform education in that direction are underway, they are too slow and not decisive enough, resulting in too many of our children being left behind.

In this book, Peter Dalmaris argues that it does not have to be like that.

Using Maker Education as a model for education in the 21st Century, Dr Peter Dalmaris explains how teachers, parents and learners can apply the educational methods of inventors and innovators for the benefit of their students and children

  • ​Download the book as printable PDF file, as well as ePub and Mobi files.
  • ​Understand why learning in the 21st century is changing, and how.
  • ​Understand while thinking like an inventor is the key to learning in a high-tech society.
  • ​Understand how learner-lead learning can enhance classroom outcomes.
  • ​Find out why Maker Education and the principles that underpin it offer a new way to teach and learn.
  • ​Understand the importance of the Mentor, and how the role of the teacher is being transformed.
  • ​Enhance your teaching by using deliberate practice, play, drive and mindset in your classroom and home.
  • ​Discover practical tools and activities, and use them immediately and with minimal cost.

​Teach robotics with the mBot

​Arduino Robotics with the mBot

​An introduction to robotics with the world's friendliest learning robot

The mBot is an Arduino-based, two-wheel robot that comes with build-in sensors and actuators, and that you can program using ​mBlock, a graphical programming language.


The main project of Arduino Robotics with the mBot involves programming the mBot to follow an arbitrary black line on the floor. In this project, we combine our robot’s sensors and actuators efficiently to enable it to stay on the line while it travels on it as quickly as possible.

  • ​Level: ​beginner
  • ​Course type: project
  • ​Full lifetime access.
  • ​Dedicated discussion forum.
