Teaching programing to new learners can be a difficult tasks. The Circuits 101 Classroom line was designed as a complete classroom solution for teaching electronics. Not only does Brown Dog Gadgets give teachers a robust set of materials to use but they also provide the lesson plans, projects, activities, diagrams, and videos.
The curriculum and lesson plans focus on teaching students the basics of programing while also having them modify more complicated code in order to learn HOW different parts interact. They take parts such as distance sensors and show how to manipulate servos, 7 segment displays, speakers, and LEDs to show readings. Brown Dog Gadget's goal is to inspire and engage students, not just teach them how to write lines of code.
Programing 101 Sets comes with anywhere from 5 to 25 boxes filled with electronics parts and supplies. Teachers can easily hand out the boxes and use the free curriculum and resources to quickly and easily run lessons. Every Set comes with a Teacher Box which includes a full set of supplies as well as additional ribbon cables, tape, and informational cards. Each student box is a compete set of parts to be used by one group of students. (We recommend groups of no larger than three students, especially when working with a computer.)
In addition to electronics parts Programing 101 Kits come with both Squishy Circuits Dough and Bare Conductive Paint (paint and dough not included in the 1 Pack - Single Student Box option). Use conductive paint to create your own Piano, or control a servo by changing the length of conductive dough.
The Brown Dog Gadgets curriculum is always being updated and improved on. They have aligned their lessons to Common Core and NGSS standards for easy integration into any new or existing curriculum. In addition to lesson plans, their curriculum also includes activity pages, assessments, diagrams, and videos for classroom use.
As with all Crazy Circuits Kits, the Classroom Sets require no soldering. Parts are connected in a brick based building environment via our special Maker Tape conductive tape. The only additional tools you'll need are scissors and a computer to manipulate code.
