Small Business Saturday

As a small non-profit we are running holiday sales. Your purchases go directly to supporting our ability to provide free and discounted workshops and materials to schools and learners.

Giving Tuesday

Peter and Isabel from Gearbox Labs are asking for your help this year. Your support could be doubled through Facebook's Giving Tuesday program.

This year Facebook is pledging to match donations made to charities on Tuesday, December 1, 2020, through the Facebook platform. See this link for more information on Facebook's support. This year we are raising money for two of our programs.

Half of the donations on Giving Tuesday will go to our STEM scholarship program. Our first scholarship will be announced on #GivingTuesday. More information will be posted here The second half of your donations will go to providing educators with books, kits, and STEM experiences. Currently, we have three classrooms that have asked us to help their efforts and they would benefit from your immediate support.

Over the past year, Gearbox Labs has reached thousands of students and teachers around the world with our book, kits, face-to-face workshops, virtual workshops, and YouTube training videos. We have had worked with learners in their homes, schools, and universities in 23 states and 14 countries.

Please stop by our Facebook Page to donate on Tuesday.

The ARDUINO® Classroom: STEAM Edition

The curriculum features 25 base projects and extensions for 110 more. The projects build skills and knowledge in engineering, coding in C/C++, engineering design, and prototyping through scientific applications. Many of the projects can replace science labs found in biology, chemistry, and physics classrooms (for other implementation models click here).  

Written with easy to use, step-by-step instructions, and full-color photos and technical diagrams of each project, students and their teachers will find these projects, challenging, engaging, and built to foster innovation skills and stimulate creativity.

The projects are scaffolded from start to finish and is written for the classroom and learners who are just starting with Arduino®The projects in the book are an excellent preparatory sequence for high school robotics competitions.

Each project starts with a digital design and coding simulation then progresses to a physical design using the Arduino® UNO coded with the Arduino® IDE. Learners then are challenged to innovate and use the base skills they have acquired to build variations of the project that solve real-world issues.

Order your curriculum, kits, or workshops here.
