The Arduino Engineering Kit includes three cutting-edge Arduino-based projects so that students can learn fundamental engineering concepts, key aspects of mechatronics, and MATLAB and Simulink programming. The Arduino Engineering Kit includes its own Education Learning Management System (LMS) with step-by-step instructions and lessons. The Kit includes the required parts for the projects, and a license to Matlab and Simulink. The content of this kit is divided into six chapters, featuring a short introduction, a getting-started guide for the tools that will be used, a concepts section, and finally the projects themselves. Users will receive access to the online platform and required programs for one year and can purchase additional licenses to extend platform access.
The parts required for the projects are send to the student.
The license to MATLAB and Simulink programs comes with the Kit order
The projects are about creating programmable mechatronics projects from Arduino components.
In addition to teaching the basics, the projects also suggest more demanding tasks for more advanced students.
The pedagogical analysis covers how the product supports learning of the identified skills. The student’s role is assessed by four contrary pair parameters, which are selected to cover the most essential aspects on the use of the product.
The following are the high educational quality aspects in this product.
The supported learning goals are identified by matching the product with several relevant curricula descriptions on this subject area. The soft skills are definitions of learning goals most relevant for the 21st century. They are formed by taking a reference from different definitions of 21st century skills and Finnish curriculum.
