"So far, I’ve heard nothing but good things about the lessons. Everything was nicely paced with your book, and they even left enough room for the students to customize the simple codes to create their own things.Thank you so much for allowing us to use your lessons with your amazing product. Since we received good reviews from teachers and parents about them, we will try to continue using them for future camps." - Natasha
"Thank you very much for getting this out. I am sure I will enjoy going through this with my daughter. I really appreciate the effort and enthusiasm you put into this project." - Ray T.
"I've backed a number of "educational" Arduino projects and yours is by far the best. Learned quite a bit working through it." - Jack H.
"Mike, the Avocado Beginner board is just terrific. It allowed my12 year old to start programming immediately. He said "this is more fun than Minecraft" That's high praise!" - Michael C. [RESULTS NOT TYPICAL, LOL - Mike L.]

The Avocado Beginner Board makes learning programming simple, fast, and fun. With the Avocado Beginner Board, Young Person's Guide to Arduino, and an Arduino (not included), you can learn how to program at a fast and engaging pace. Why the Avocado Beginner Board?
While there are hundreds of circuit boards designed to help you do complicated things easily with the Arduino, there is no board to help you do the basic beginner programs. Now there is ... the Avocado Beginner Board. It collects all the beginner circuits into a nice little board that allows you to focus on the programming instead of the wiring.
With the Young Person's Guide to Arduino, you have 15 projects for beginners:
Avocado Beginner Board on top of an Arduino Uno R3 (Arduino not included in Regular Kit.)
With the Avocado Beginner Board, no wiring is needed. Nine LEDs, a light sensor, temperature sensor, two switches, and a speaker are permanently wired to a sturdy circuit board that snaps right into an Arduino microcontroller. With the Avocado Beginner Board attached to your Arduino, it is fast and easy to create programs and see instant results.
One of the great things about working with the Avocado Beginner Board is how quickly you can iterate and experiment as you learn. This is facilitated by the Young Person's Guide to Arduino. Just like a science class, students learn through iterative experiments of increasing complexity. Each lesson then starts with fundamental programming principles, a review of the commands that will be used, and an example program. After coding and executing the sample program, problems are presented that require the student to synthesize and apply their learning in new ways. Students quickly change and execute their modified code to test their assumptions. This iterative approach quickly builds problem solving aptitude, a critical skill for any person in a technical field. Each chapter consists of an experiment and each experiment has four parts.
