This kit introduces you to programming in a fun, step-by-step way. An Arduino-compatible gamepad connects wirelessly to your tablet. Using the gamepad and four interchangeable sensor modules, you play through a video game app on your tablet. In each level of the game, you have to learn a piece of the Arduino programming language and how to use it in order to solve puzzles and challenges and move forward in the game. In this way, you progressively learn the basics of coding. Soon you will be able to write programs on your computer using the four sensors, and invent new applications. Following instructions in the 64-page, full-color experiment manual, you can create cool projects such as a light-sensitive drawer alarm and an LED disco light that reacts to the movements of your fingers.
