GrovePi Kits for class of 10 to 30 students (1 to 3 per team) for Grades 6-10. Bundle of Kits, Curriculum, and PD and support for the teacher. Teaches Scratch coding, inventing, and engineering design cycle while building a custom project controlled with a Raspberry Pi. This is a great introduction to engineering or inventing course with project based learning.
Bundle Includes Grove Pi Kits, Software, Curriculum, PD and Support:
Includes 10 GrovePi Kits for creating inventions. The GrovePi Starter Kit includes the GrovePi board, Raspberry Pi 3 board, 2-sided Acrylic Case, 12 Grove sensors, Ethernet Cable, Power Adapter and microSD Card with Dexter's custom software to get up and running quickly. Note: Monitors and Keyboards are NOT included but are highly recommended. Requires a monitor with HDMi cable, keyboard and mouse with USB.
Curriculum includes a one year site license for up to 50 students per term (this allows 2 class sessions per semester or term, students are re-assigned each term). Curriculum is online self-paced learning with videos, worksheets, step-by-step instructions, and is aligned to NGSS, CSTA, Math, and ELA standards. Professional Development is conducted via video conference. Teacher and Technical support is via phone, email, or video conference. (Learn More about the Curriculum)

With a GrovePi+ board and 12 carefully selective Grove sensors with cables, this starter kit gets you up and running with the Raspberry Pi quickly. Just slip the GrovePi+ board over your Raspberry Pi and connect sensors to the board, and you are ready to start developing things with the powerful platform.
The GrovePi+board is stacked on top of the Raspberry Pi board without the need for any other connections. Communication between the two occurs over the I2C interface. All Grove modules connect to the universal Grove connectors on the GrovePi+ shield via the universal 4 pin connector cables which are included.
The Grove modules work on analog and digital signals, connect directly to the ATMEGA328 microcontroller on the Grove Pi+. The microcontroller acts as an interpreter between the Raspberry Pi and the Grove sensors. It sends, receives, and executes commands sent by the RaspberryPi.
