Grove for Arduino is a system of cables and components that always match.
Instead of messing around with breadboards and jumper wires, and struggling to find matching hardware, you can simply use more than 300 Grove standard components, plug them together, and within seconds you have a circuit ready to program with the standard Arduino IDE.
No more frustration.
Grove for Arduino is an ideal solution for educators and students, but also for Makers, who want to experiment with the Arduino but don’t want to have to deal with the common frustrations of wiring.
Think about how much time you have lost troubleshooting problematic wiring on a breadboard!
With Grove, connections are quick and reliable, so you can concentrate on being creative.
In this course, I’m going to show you how to use the Grove system for the Arduino.
It is a course for people who are already familiar with the Arduino. Ideally, you a graduate of Arduino Step by Step Getting Started, and you are comfortable programming the Arduino with the Arduino IDE.
In this course, first I will show you how to use some of the most common Grove components and the Grove Base Shield, and then I will show you how to use these components to create 5 fun projects.
With this knowledge, you can go on to create your own projects. In particular, if you are a teacher, you can use these projects in your classroom.
And if you are a student, you can get inspiration for your own science fair project.
