Mouser Electronics, Inc., is now stocking the new Grove Zero kit from Seeed Studio. The Grove Zero kit contains a set of color-coded, magnetic electronic modules that enable teachers and students to learn about programming, electronics, design and logic.

The Seeed Studio Grove Zero kit is a collection of plug-and-play modules, each with a built-in microcontroller preconfigured with code. The modules are color coded according to function — like a sensor input or LED output — and snap together via magnetic connectors that allow students to connect the modules without worrying about order or direction. The modules feature 2.54-mm breakout pads for advanced users or students ready to learn how to solder and build simple circuits.

Seeed Grove Zero Modules are programmable through the Arduino integrated development environment (IDE) as well as through the Module Matcher or Microsoft MakeCode graphical interface. With student resources, a teacher’s guide and detailed curriculum written by experienced educators, the Grove Zero Starter kit allows teachers to bring these lessons into their classrooms, regardless of previous experience with electronics.
