Innovate

The Innovator's Kit from TUIT.Tech is a gift of opportunity. It contains more than a plastic box full of components. It comes with all the customized support your group needs to get started on the road towards innovative ideas and projects that you can call your own.

Basic Innovator Kit

Arduino

Arduino is an open-source platform used for building electronics projects. Arduino consists of both a physical programmable circuit board (often referred to as a microcontroller) and a piece of software, or IDE (Integrated Development Environment) that runs on your computer, used to write and upload computer code to the physical board.

The Arduino platform has become quite popular with people just starting out with electronics, and for good reason. Unlike most previous programmable circuit boards, the Arduino does not need a separate piece of hardware (called a programmer) in order to load new code onto the board – you can simply use a USB cable. Additionally, the Arduino IDE uses a simplified version of C++, making it easier to learn to program. Finally, Arduino provides a standard form factor that breaks out the functions of the micro-controller into a more accessible package.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

LEDs and Resistors

LEDs (Light-emitting diodes) are my favourite pieces of hardware in any project. Not only are they great indicators for what is working (or not working) in my code, they're pretty too. For me, LEDs are like candy at a checkout counter. I gotta have them. Of course, with every LED there needs to be a resistor. Hey, it's "The Law" ...Ohm's Law that is. Feed these suckers too much voltage? And poof. 

Twenty LEDs (5 red, 5 green, 5 blue, and 5 clear) are included with the Basic Innovator Kit (hence 20 resistors).

Curriculum Alert! LEDs are a great way to learn about the principles of colour and light. There's even an RGB LED included in this kit, so that you can make all the colours of the rainbow, and all the colours in between!
