Grove Zero: Snap-and-Play Programmable Modules

Grove Zero: Snap-and-Play Programmable Modules

Grove Zero is a platform comprised of various electronic modules that aim to make STEM learning as simple, practical and most importantly enjoyable! From the easy to use snap-and-play magnetic connections to the block-based programming interface the Grove Zero is ideal for aiding in the teaching of programming, troubleshooting, electronics and so much more.

 

Snap and Play

All the Grove Zero modules are snap-and-play, connecting different inputs and outputs will help children/students to learn about electronics in a fun and safe way. The quick connect nature of the modules allows different systems to be created easily with no wasted materials.

Colour-coded by Functions

All of the modules are colour-coded depending on the function they perform so you can easily recognise them and understand a created system. Pink for control, blue for inputs, white for outputs, green for power and orange for other types.

Magnetic Adaptor

The flexible magnetic adaptors allow you to snap the modules together securely, connect them side by side or even stack them on top of each other.

 

Cable Connectors

The magnetic adaptor can be detached from the module and you can use cables instead. This allows you to easily chain modules together in other orientations and even when they're not close enough to use the magnetic system.

Programming

You can easily program Grove Zero modules with Codecraft, a graphical programming software based on Scratch 3.0. Develop interactive games, make art or go after any creative feat you have in mind. When you're ready you can convert your block program into Python or Javascript and continue to advance your programming knowledge.

There is also a graphical programming app that allows kids to program modules on their tablets and phones using drag-and-drop blocks. It's simple, easy and most of all fun.
