Why Use Hardware to Learn Code?

When you think of computer programming, you may not think of motors, lights, speakers, and switches. So why use hardware to learn to code? Simple: It's more fun and more engaging.

The first time you send a robot flying off a table or duct tape a motion detector to your wall, we bet you'll agree. Holding the creations that you dreamt up, designed, and programmed is such an exciting feeling that can't be matched by a keyboard and a high-resolution screen.

Plus, you can bring your own tools and creativity to the table. Popsicle sticks, glue, rubber bands, jar lids, and cardboard boxes are welcome! Sometimes, the programming is only the beginning of something great. When you're building with something real, there are no limits except your imagination.
