FunShield, an Arduino Educational Platform I’ve been using the SparkFun Inventor's Kit to help teach electronics and programming to Teen Makers at our local public library in Corvallis Oregon. We’ve had lots of success, but being able to get a bread-boarded circuit working is sometimes a discouraging hurdle to younger makers, especially if time is limited, so I designed this shield to so that we could skip the wiring and get right to programming. I’m calling it the FunShield because what I really want kids to learn is how fun programming is.
The shield gives you access to input devices like a potentiometer, photocell, push buttons, and a temperature IC. The shield also contains outputs in the form of eight standard LEDs, an RGB LED, and a piezo speaker. There is no way to hook them up wrong or have conflicting pin assignments.

Not sure about making a kit? We've made it as easy a possible to assemble. Check out the detailed instructions at Instructables.com. Nothing could be better than programming your next embedded project using a shield you built yourself!
