Description

The PodPi kits provide an immersive STEM learning experience in electronics and coding. Introduce your students to hands-on electronics and JavaScript programming with Arduino and the PodPi series of comic books. The combination of technology and literacy will engage teachers and students together in learning these critical skills in a new and exciting way. PodPi has replaced typical step by step instructions with contextual storytelling to promote critical thinking and problem solving – making it a truly engaging way to learn. In classrooms, students can learn on their own or can be paired to foster greater collaboration. PodPi provides near-time support to teachers through an online forum (public and private one-on-one sessions).

PodPi Island kit comes with modules M2 and M3.  Continue the adventures in learning JavaScript and hands-on electronics with the next set of PodPi comic books and components.  M2 provides a set of challenges based on the prior lessons.  Each kit includes a 400 ties breadboard, new cables, additional resistors and LED, 10mm large RGB LEDs, buttons and sensors.  M3 introduces a 8x8 LED matrix.  Students learn how to make a small LED electronic flip-book.  Each kit comes with 4 PodPi comic books (2 for each module).  Each comic book provides 3-6 hours of lessons including experiments.  Best suited for 4th-8th grades.

Module M2 - Fireworks
It's time to celebrate your arrival on the island! Learn how LEDs and RGB LEDs work. Learn the reason behind using resistors with your LEDs. Solve the four challenges with the Pods to light up the fireworks at night. Content: LEDs, RGB LEDs, buttons, wires, mini solderless breadboard, potentiometer and temperature sensor.

M2 Module Goals:

  • Provide a solid understanding of components setup
  • Boost confidence with hands-on circuit building
  • Pattern recognition and learning to research solutions in previous books
  • Failure is part of the learning experience. The challenges can be hard to solve and will not work right away. Parents and educators should encourage the students to persevere.

Module M3 - Juggle with Matrix
Juggle with Matrix and her 64 LEDs. This kit ships with a 64 LED Matrix, wires and the 32 pages PodPi Volume 3. Learn how the I2C protocol works and make an electronic flipbook to impress your parents and friends. Contents: A 8x8 LEDs matrix with I2C interface, a set of wires and the Matrix sew-on badge.

M3 Module Goals:

  • Fun. This book is about making something fun and exciting
  • Patterns. Develop patterns and transcribe them into code
  • Creativity. Make an animated electronic flip-book
  • Basic understanding of communication protocols
