What is an Arduino?
An Arduino is an open-source platform used for building electronic projects. The key term here is "open-source", meaning that anyone is able to modify and experiment with software. It is for this reason that it serves as an ideal gateway into learning electronic engineering.

According to renowned computer scientist, Jeannette M. Wing, computational thinking skill is the most in-demand skill in the age of information. Computational thinking allows us to problem-solve and think like a computer scientist. more
Programming at Early Ages
Educators agree that the best age to learn a skill like math or language is ages 5 - 11 years old. Similarly, children need to start learning coding at an early age to build a deeper foundation for their future. more
MIT App Inventor
MIT professor Hal Abelson took the initiative to build a platform to to make app development easy and accessible for people who were non-programmers, even kids. more
Python is one of the most popular programming language in the world right now which has helped create platforms like Facebook and Youtube! And surprisingly it is so simple that kids aged 5 years old can understand it. more

Before the device was conceived, the founders used to meet up in a bar in Italy called Arduino. Their goal was to create simple, accessible and low-cost tools that would give everyone a chance to create their own digital projects. Unlike other programmable circuit boards that require additional hardware, in order to load new code all you need is a USB cable. Whether you are a 5 year old kid starting out, a bachelor student or a seasoned computer programmer, the Arduino's simplicity and versatility allows for infinite possibilities. The software can be used to design anything from a robotic arm to a fingerprint scanner that controls your garage door. There are a number of resources available online to help kickstart Arduino projects and ultimately manifest your own original ideas.
