RS Components has introduced new ranges from Seeed Studio, Arduino and Bare Conductive that target academic institutions, including educators and students of electronics, as well as inspiring electronics design engineers with new projects and prototypes.
The first launch is the Seeed Studio hardware innovation platform, which specialises in open-source electronic modules and embedded devices for designers and makers. The platform includes the Grove series of modules and starter kits, including the GrovePi+ Starter Kit for Raspberry Pi, and the BeagleBone Green.
The second is the Arduino Engineering Kit, which targets a range of users including students learning about engineering at a university or at a secondary school, and engineering professors that want practical resources to demonstrate engineering concepts to their students.
In conjunction with the Arduino online platform, the kit includes three projects to help students learn about fundamental engineering concepts, key aspects of mechatronics, and Matlab and Simulink programming for system modelling and embedded algorithm development. Buildable projects in the kit include a self-balancing motorcycle, a mobile rover, and a whiteboard drawing robot. The kit includes an easy-to-use Arduino MKR1000 board, several customised parts, and a complete set of components required to assemble all three projects.
Lastly, RS has also made available three educational kits that use conductive paint from Bare Conductive: the ‘Printed Sensors’ set comprises three A5 printed sensors and enables users to integrate touch sensors into any project; the Lamp Kit enables the building of touch, dimmer and proximity lamps; and the Pro Kit includes all the required tools and resources to prototype Electric Paint and Touch Board projects.
Lance Hemmings, senior category manager semiconductors and optoelectronics commented: “The launch of these educational products and technologies demonstrates our continuing commitment to educators and students and our belief that it is critical to support young engineering talent, whether they are at school or university.”
