    Curriculum or Lesson Topics:

    You receive the following curriculum with the purchase of a uKit Explore:

    STEM Curriculum

    These units are aligned to Grades 6-8 Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and include science and engineering practices, disciplinary core ideas, cross-curricular connections, and an interactive digital student notebook.

    Working with Circuits Curriculum

    This curriculum provides an introduction to the complete circuitry kit included with the uKit Explore. Detailed tutorials and 15 circuitry activities with sample codes familiarize students with the fundamentals of circuitry and electrical engineering. Using Arduino IDE, students interact and program the uKit microcontroller to expand their coding skills to text-based programming using C/C++.

    UKIT Spark Starters

    These open-ended challenges allow students the opportunity to build their own robots to complete a specific task. Spark Starters are great for class challenges, makerspaces, camps, before/afterschool clubs, and group activities.

    AI Foundations Curriculum

    Requiring no hardware, this curriculum provides online resources, unplugged activities, and hands-on lessons to teach basic artificial intelligence and computer science concepts. Learn more about our AI curriculum here.

    Other Notable Features:

    Teach with uCode

    uCode is the web programming environment that takes machine learning to the next level. Students of all levels can program using block-based coding and dual text-based programming. uCode not only programs uKit Explore robots but goes above and beyond, allowing students to create digital games and animations, code 3D simulations, and utilize real-time AI programming. 

    • 3D, 360-degree build instructions for 38 robots
    • AI-integrated blocks and machine model training environment
    • 3 programming environments: Stage, Upload, and 3D

    In order to connect the uKit Explore board within uCode, users must install and open the uCode Connection Assistant (PC or Mac) as prompted when trying to connect.

    uCode is optimized for Google Chrome and best runs within the Chrome browser.


    Program with Arduino IDE

    The uKit Explore programming board is also fully compatible with the Arduino programming environment. The Arduino IDE is an open-source platform that allows users to write programs and upload to multiple micro-controllers. Download Arduino IDE here.
