Best On-line Curriculum, Tools, and Resources for Teaching Arduino

A curated list of the best resources on-line for teaching students about how to use Arduino.

Arduino in a Nutshell

Back to Tools Downloaded over 25,000 times! The Arduino is a family of microcontroller boards to simplify electronic design, prototyping and experimenting for artists, hackers, hobbyists, but also many professionals. This little booklet, written by Prof. Jan Borchers, introduces you to using an Arduino.

Arduino Playground - ManualsAndCurriculum

Manuals and curriculum provide cohesive coverage of Arduino in general, or of specific applications of Arduino in particular. In either case, these are single sources that cover a variety of related topics. These could be used by individuals, teachers, and classes as stand-alone introductions to Arduino.


codebender is an online development & collaboration platform for Arduino users, makers and engineers.

It has an awesome editor, fast cloud-based compiler, helpful error reporting.

Share your work, search for existing projects and clone them, or collaborate with others.

Thinker 1 prototyping board resources

A great, simple Arduino-compatible board with a list of activities to teach basic digital I\O on a microcontroller.

Arduino Video Tutorial - 01 Get to know your Tools with Massimo Banzi

Learn the basics of using the Arduino Starter Kit with Massimo Banzi, one of the Co-Founders of Arduino. The video explains how to build a basic circuit with the Arduino board, and how to use each of the basic components such as LEDs, switches, and resistors.

Course: PH199: Arduino microcontroller

This is an Arduino Microcontroller class in the Physics department that is taught at Linn-Benton Community College by Greg Mulder and Parker Swanson. It contains a breakdown of many topics, lesson ideas, and assessments around teaching Arduino. It culminates with the design, construction, and programming of an Underwater ROV controlled by an Arduino.

Intro to Arduino by Alan Smith

Arduino in Physics Class

I've been teaching AP Physics for a while, and had been looking for a way to introduce some project work that would be fun, while extending the topics we were studying in class. I also like playing around with programming, and always thought that the mathematical problem-solving involved was only a short step from the...

Arduino - Getting Started

Getting Started with Arduino (

4 week Arduino Curriculum -- Creative Technologies |

Fantastic resource for teachers interested in a curriculum around Arduino!

Critical Making | course at UC - Berkeley

Critical Making will operationalize and critique the practice of "making" through both foundational literature and hands on studio culture. As hybrid practitioners, students will develop fluency in readily collaging and incorporating a variety of physical materials and protocols into their practice.

Programming Arduino -- Simple Sketches to get you started by Simon Monk

This book is all about Programming the Arduino. I wrote it to try and respond to the many problems that come up on the Arduino forums about how to program an Arduino. The book does not assume any prior knowledge about programming or experience of electronics. Chapter 1. This is Arduino.

Arduino Classroom

The official Arduino website is located at: (yes that is .cc and not a typo). With that website and reasonable Google skills you can find everything you could possibly need or want to know about the Arduino - so why do you need the Arduino Classroom?

Great little site of links about using Arduino in the classroom -- Arduino Teachers User Group

This site is a project by the St Peter High School Technology class
