Grove Zero Series Introduction:
Grove Zero is a set of programmable elctronic building blocks which snap together with magentic connections & are used in conjuction with graphical programming software to achieve creative and functional projects. Grove Zero can be used boths as a tool to foster children's creativty as a classroom tool for STEM education. Learn more about the series here.
If this is your first experience with the Grove Zero series, we recommend that you purchase introductory kits such as the Starter Kit, Car Kit or Bit Kit, which include instructional documentation to help you get familiar with this educational series.

How this module works?
The RGB LED matrix is composed of 64 RGB LEDs spread in an 8x8 grid. When the screen shows an image, each of the RGB LEDs represents a pixel that makes up the image. Similar to a LED matrix, the RGB version shows text, numbers, patterns and animations by having the specified LEDs light up or remain off.
All LEDs in the grid have their own unique coordinates as well. The LED located at the top left corner is defined as the origin (0, 0); whilst the one at the bottom right corner is (7, 7).
You can program the RGB LED matrix very easily with Codecraft to achieve more creative and challenging projects.
