    The RobotGeek Geekduino Basic Experimenter's Kit is an inexpensive introduction to the RobotGeek System which covers a great deal of the basics of Arduino programming. This kit, in combination with the RobotGeek 101 series of tutorials, provides a clear route to learning about Analog and Digital Inputs and Outputs, Sensors, Lights and Servos. The carefully selected components in this kit will put the power of learning and creativity at hand!

    At the core of the RobotGeek Arduino kits is the workbench to mount your projects on. All RobotGeek products are compatible with the bench and each include mounting hardware giving you the opportunity to continue adding to your portable arduino workstation!

    The kit includes:

    Basic Experimenter's Kit Getting Started Guide

    RobotGeek 101:

    Chapter #1 - RobotGeek & Geekduino Primer

    Lesson 1.1 - Setting up Your Geekduino/Arduino

    This guide will show you how to set up the Arduino IDE with the correct RobotGeek files, as well as setup and program your Geekduino for the first time. Even if you have an Arduino Uno or other Arduino based microcontroller, you should go through this guide so that you have all the library files and test sketches installed. This lesson is required before moving on.

    Reference Lesson 1.2 - RobotGeek Hardware Construction

    This is an optional lesson, though we highly recommend it if you'll be building with the RobotGeek System. In this guide you will be introduced to the core concepts of building with the RobotGeek system. You will learn about the basics of mounting robotGeek hardware as well as some advanced tips for building custom projects. Even if you have a RobotGeek kit with its own assembly instructions we recommend that you look over this guide to become more familiar with different building techniques.

    Reference Lesson 1.3 - RobotGeek Sensor Shield & Wiring

    This is an optional lesson, though we highly recommend it if you'll be building with the RobotGeek System. Here you'll learn how to wire your RobotGeek projects. This guide focuses on using the RobotGeek Sensor shield to make stable connections to various inputs and outputs. This guide will also give you a brief overview of the different functions of ports on the sensor shield, and when to best use them.

    Reference Lesson 1.4 - Programming Reference

    This is an optional lesson. This programming reference is for those who have never programmed before or need to brush up on basic programming concepts. All of the core concepts will be covered in the RobotGeek 101 course, but a brief overview of programming concepts can still be useful.

    Chapter #2 - Serial Communication

    Lesson 2.1 - Serial Communication Introduction

    In Lesson 2.1 we'll show you how to start a Serial Communication session, and how to send data back and forth to/from your Geekduino and your computer.

    Reference Lesson 2.2 - Serial Communication

    This is an optional lesson. The Serial Communication Reference will explore the Geekduino's Serial Communication functions in-depth. This reference is designed as a supplement to Lesson 2.1, but is not required for the next chapter.

    Chapter #3 - Digital Output

    Lesson 3.1 - Digital Output Introduction

    In Lesson 3.1 you will learn to control digital outputs like LEDs and buzzers from your Geekduino

    Reference Lesson 3.2 - Digital Output

    This is an optional lesson. The Digital Output Reference will explore advanced features of the Geekduino's Digital Output. This reference is designed as a supplement to Lesson 3.1, but is not required for the next chapter.

    Chapter #4 - Digital Input

    Lesson 4.1 - Digital Input Introduction

    In Lesson 4.1 you will learn to read digital inputs like pushbuttons and use that data to control digital outputs.

    Reference Lesson 4.2 - Digital Input

    This is an optional lesson. The Digital Input Reference will explore advanced features of the Geekduino's Digital Input. This reference is designed as a supplement to Lesson 4.1, but is not required for the next chapter.

    Chapter #5 - Analog Input

    Lesson 5.1 - Analog Input Introduction

    In Lesson 5.1 you will learn how to read data from an analog sensor like a knob and use that data in the Arduino environment.

    Reference Lesson 5.2 - Analog Input

    This is an optional lesson. The Analog Input Reference will explore the advanced features of the Geekduino's Analog Input. This reference is designed as a supplement to Lesson 5.1, but is not required for the next chapter.

    Chapter #6 - Pulse Width Modulation (PWM)

    Lesson 6.1 - Pulse Width Modulation (PWM) Introduction

    In Lesson 6.1 you will learn how to use Pulse Width Modulation to change the intensity of an LED.

    Reference Lesson 6.2 - Pulse Width Modulation (PWM)

    This is an optional lesson. The PWM Reference will explore the Geekduino's PWM functions in-depth. This reference is designed as a supplement to Lesson 6.1, but is not required for the next chapter.

    Chapter #7 - Servo Control

    Lesson 7.1 - Servo Centering

    In Lesson 7.1 you will learn how to center 180 ° servos from your Geekduino.

    Lesson 7.2 - 9G Servo Control

    In Lesson 7.2 you will learn how to control 180 ° 9G micro servos from your Geekduino.

    Lesson 7.3 - 180 ° Servo Control

    In Lesson 7.3 you will learn how to control 180 ° RobotGeek servos from your Geekduino.

    Lesson 7.4 - Continuous Turn Servo Control

    In Lesson 7.4 you will learn how to control RobotGeek continous turn servos from your Geekduino.

    Reference Lesson 7.5 - Servos

    This is an optional lesson. The Servo Reference will explore the Geekduino's Servo functions in-depth. This reference is designed as a supplement to Lesson 7.2, but is not required for the next chapter.
