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.
Since the Grove Zero is specially designed for kids, the connection of modules is designed to be very simple. There are three connection ways.
Connect with Magnets
Connect with Cables
Connect with Breakout Holes
The easiest way is to use the magnetic connectors because kids can snap the modules together in any orders without concerning connecting to the wrong port.
Grove Zero are all color-coded by functions. Currently there are four colors stands for different functionalities – Pink for the main board, blue for input module, white for output module, and green for battery module. The color coded feature is a good way for kids to distinguish modules types, and when kids open the package, they will find a colorful kit instead of single boring color.
Grove Zero modules are all programmable, and programing with Grove Zero is very simple because it supports 2 graphical programming tools – Module Matcher for beginners and Microsoft MakeCode for advanced users. Just by some clicking and dragging, kids are able to build simple programming project and starts an invention journey.
As a product line specially designed for STEM, we hope Grove Zero not just have easy-to-use hardware, but also have rich and well designed documentation. As for the starter kit, we have already prepared well designed user guide that suitable for kids.
