Grove Zero Starter Kit

This kit comes complete with 9 color-coded, snap and play, programmable Grove Zero modules designed for STEM education. Kids are free to connect modules in different ways to create their projects. Throughout this process, kids will develop programming skills, creativity and logical thinking.

This kit includes 9 Grove zero modules and is designed for kids who are beginners to graphical programming and robotics. Among these modules, the light sensor, sound sensor and twin-button module are what we call input modules; while the buzzer, RGB LED, LED matrix and servo are categorized as output modules. By connecting one or more modules to the included mainboard and battery module, you can implement a lot of your exciting and fun projects!

Comprehensive default programs are pre-loaded in any combination of input and output modules (for more info, visit here), that means, you can still explore a variety of interesting projects when snapping them together for the first time.

After having a basic understanding of those modules, you can follow the Invention Guidebook to make one of the suggested projects. Particularly, 5 of the projects can be built without any help of graphical programming. You just need to decorate them with the included project sheet and they will work perfectly with the preloaded default code.

However the fun doesn't end when you complete all of our projects in the Guidebook. We have graphical programming software, Codecraft to bring unlimited possibilities for your projects. The kit also includes a LEGO compatible base block for you to integrate LEGO into your creations.
