STEM Education for Everyone
Robotics, Internet of Things and Machine Learning are three of the trending topics in technology and electronics — you will learn how to master these three topics through a practical approach with this new ebook.
Whether it's the first time you design an electronic project (or the first time you use Arduino) or, on the contrary you already have experience in electronics, Arduino for Everyone: From Kids to Inventors will allow you to acquire essential knowledge in order to learn how to build and hack incredible projects by yourself.
Our goal is to inspire intellectual curiosity in the next generation of future global leaders in STEM fields.
We believe every child deserves access to hands-on STEM learning, which is why we plan to donate 1 product for every 10 products sold to a local charity partner that runs STEM programs at local educational institutions in underserved areas that can leverage our products.
Inside Arduino for Everyone: From Kids to Inventors you will learn how to:
- Design practical, real-world projects using Arduino.
- Create modern and professional projects with Arduino.
- Transform any idea into a project and even develop and sell your own product.
Arduino is an open-source electronics platform based on easy-to-use hardware and software. Arduino boards are able to read inputs - light on a sensor, a finger on a button, or a Twitter message - and; turn it into an output - activating a motor, turning on a LED, publishing something online. You can tell your board what to do by sending a set of instructions to the microcontroller on the board. To do so you use the Arduino programming language, and the Arduino Software (IDE).
Thanks to its simple and accessible user experience, Arduino has been used in thousands of different projects and applications.
The Arduino software is easy-to-use for beginners, yet flexible enough for advanced users. It runs on Mac, Windows, and Linux.
Teachers and students use it to build low cost scientific instruments, to prove chemistry and physics principles, or to get started with programming and robotics.
Designers and architects build interactive prototypes, musicians and artists use it for installations and to experiment with new musical instruments.
Makers, of course, use it to build many of the projects they make.
Arduino is a key tool to learn new things. Anyone - children, hobbyists, artists, programmers - can start tinkering just following our step by step guide.
With this new ebook you will learn, under a 100% practical approach, one of the most used and useful platforms in the world!
Why Arduino for Everyone: From Kids to Inventors?
Because you are a maker, but... maybe you don't know it yet.
Arduino for Everyone: From Kids to Inventors is not just another book — it's your complete training program and guide.
After going through the text and code you will be able to design your own stunning projects using Arduino— I guarantee it.
Here, are 4 reasons why Arduino for Everyone: From Kids to Inventors is better than any other book or method.
1. Practical method with real-world projects
With 1000+ projects designed along the last years, we have the required experience to show you how to design the best electronics projects with a lot of practical examples
I've made sure that every chapter will enable you to apply our previous knowledge with Arduino to real-world projects. Here are just samples:
2. Hands-on method
In this book you will learn by doing. Forget about theoretical and outdated methods and develop your own projects from the first day.
We will be there to design with you. Each chapter contains:
- Step-by step guide with detailed information, diagrams and code.
- Free tools or resources to include.
- From scratch to the final results.
- With our secret tricks to improve your project.
3. Clear and easy to follow projects
This book will not bury you under a pile of theory or pages and pages of complex code.
Instead, you'll learn through intuitive chapters that are super practical projects and show solutions to actual real-world needs and trendings.
I take the needed time to detail each chapter and examples, ensuring you not only understand what is going on but also why we're doing.
At the end of the book you will be confident in your ability to develop your own projects (even the more complex) through our easy-to-follow guides.
4. Support and advice
When was the last time you sent an email to a book course author with a question?
How long did it take for them to respond? A few days? Weeks? Months?
More than likely they never responded at all.
Our ebook is different. When you buy a book or method from me, you're not just getting the content itself — you're also getting access to me and my team of experts.
You will not find better support anywhere else online, guaranteed.
When working on your own projects in the real world you'll have some questions. Questions are a good thing — they mean you're pushing the boundaries of your current knowledge, and are looking for more.
In those situations you'll need expert advice... And we will be there to help you.
