      About The Product

      Grove Zero is a series of color-coded and magnetic electronic modules that teaches students about programming, electronics, design thinking, and logics. The modules are plug-and-play and programmable with our computer-based app, or with the drag-and-drop blocks using the Microsoft MakeCode. Students can either just snap them together to make fun creative projects, or get into re-program the modules for advanced projects. With a curriculum that is written by very experienced educators, Grove Zero Kits allows teachers with no experience or lots of experience to bring the detailed lesson plans into their classroom and embed them in their learning system.

      Why I keep loading the makecode.seeedstudio.com website (the Microsoft MakeCode editor)?

      It takes time to download the Microsoft MakeCode editor if it's your first time to visit the makecode.seeedstudio.com on a new computer.

      Why my Module Matcher is not working?

      It might because your Main Board is running a different program you uploaded previously. You can reset your Main Board and try again.

      Why would I need to reset my Main Board?
      on Nov 20,2017

      The Microbit MakeCode and Module Matcher run different programs. Once you programmed your Main Board with Microsoft MakeCode, you need to reset your Main Board to be able to use Module Matcher again.
