The Internet of Things (IoT) is a giant network of connected devices that collect and share data from all over the world, and it’s changing the way we live, work and study. Alongside this, we’re also seeing the development of new career opportunities. By learning about IoT, students will have access to these new opportunities, and better scope for the future. The Arduino Explore IoT Kit is a gateway to the digital world of connected objects and people and helps advanced high school and college students get started with the fundamental concepts of the Internet of Things quickly and easily, as it’s based on open hardware and plug-and-play connections. The kit includes ten online activities that adopt a learning-by-doing approach, through which students acquire knowledge step-by-step by constructing fully functional solutions, including experiments, challenges, and building meaningful applications. You can teach students to innovate, investigate, and explore with connected devices that use sensors, automation, protocols, and graphing to collect data they can analyze and learn from. For more information about all the online learning materials check out the content tab. Students also learn to control objects remotely using a digital dashboard – the Arduino IoT Cloud. Through the IoT Cloud, students can gather, manage and analyze data, understand how devices communicate with each other, and which tools to use to facilitate communication. The Arduino Explore IoT Kit also includes a MKR IoT Carrier, which was specially developed for this kit. The MKR IoT Carrier is an extension of your MKR1010 board, and it’s designed to help students and teachers focus more on prototyping ideas and programming, rather than on wiring and troubleshooting, by making it easier to build circuits using plug-and-play connections.
