Our teacher-designed curriculum is the most educational and hands on subscription box in the world. Each month you will get your hands on an arduino project and develop new programming
capabilities month after month. Once you receive all 12 badges you will have more hands on
programming experience than 99% of current college level computer science students.
This project will show you how to build a lamp that changes colors and only turns on when it is dark.
(We’re still not quite sure if the lamp controls your mood or the other way around.)
1.1. Arduino IDE Setup
1.2. Intro to Prototyping with a Breadboard (Fresh and Gluten Free)
1.3. My First Sketch (No Pencil Necessary)
1.4. Sine Waves and Algorithms, the sky’s the limit!
This project will help you build a fun game that challenges your memory recall
of randomly-generated sequences of multi-colored LEDs.
2.1. Using Multiple Inputs and Outputs (I/O, I/O, it’s off to code I go.)
2.2. Randomizing Outputs
2.3. Using Arrays
2.4. Generating Sounds – Frequency Manipulation
This project will help you use an ultrasonic sensor to detect the distance of an object.
(Yes, you too can be Batman (or Batwoman)!)
3.1. Detecting Variable Input Values
3.2. Using the Serial Monitor (Has nothing to do with breakfast food)
3.3. Inferring Hardware Configuration by Analyzing the Code
“My kids love technology and are almost impossible to shop for.
Now instead of taking apart my computer, they spend all their time adding
to and combining their Creation Crate projects
to see what else they can create!”
7.3. Interpreting Inputs to Calculate Related Values
This project will help you create a display that will represent the volume level of your music. (Play that funky music, DJ!)
8.1. Controlling an Array of LEDs
8.2. Smart LEDs (aka Neopixels)
8.3. Using the Interrupt Command
“I wanted the power to be able to create anything and have an interesting hobby. I first took boring coding classes and they were all the same. That is when I saw Creation Crate’s videos and ordered the first project in their
curriculum. Now I am on month 3 and have more projects and coding
capabilities then my best friend who is in college for computer science!”
