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 Starter Kit comes with modules M0 and M1 and have all the components necessary to get going right away. Each kit includes an Arduino board, USB cable, prototype shield with mini breadboard, a set of wires, LEDs (and RGB), resistors, buttons, potentiometer, sensors and a servo motor (metal gears). 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 M0 - Getting Started with Arduino
Welcome to the Island of PodPi - A series of adventures in learning JavaScript and electronics. This first kit in the series will get you and your students everything you need to get started in learning with Arduino. This 3rd edition packs an Arduino board, some electronic components and Volume 0 of the PodPi series. It will help you get setup and on your way to blink your first LEDs and other lessons. Content: The module contains PodPi's own Arduino UNO compatible board (custom board by Captain Arghuino), a prototype shield, the first PodPi lesson book and, all the components necessary to complete the setup and the first set of lessons. Learn to connect LEDs and resistors and how to control them using JavaScript.

Module M0 Goals:

  • To introduce the students to story lead lessons rather than step-by-step
  • First Aha! moment when controlling an LED on lesson 1
  • Remove the fear of trying something new
  • Understanding the relationship between hardware and software interactions

Module M1 - To the Island
Continue the adventures with Captain Arghuino on his ship and learn how to use a potentiometer, a light sensor, a temperature sensor and a servo motor. At the end of the lessons, we challenge you to make a runway for Servo to take off.

Module M1 Goals:

  • Introducing simple experiments to ignite curiosity
  • Provide an overview of basic sensors and components used throughout PodPi
  • Control inputs and outputs through examples

Kit: 5 kits for 10 students.

Each Kit Includes Arduino board, USB cable, prototype shield with mini breadboard, a set of wires, LEDs (and RGB), resistors, buttons, potentiometer, sensors, a servo motor, 4 PodPi comic books and plastic case.
