A digitec product


The Digital Sandbox (DS) is a learning platform that engages both the
software and hardware worlds.

It's powered by a microcontroller that can interact with real-world
inputs - like light or temperature sensors - while at the same time
controlling LEDs, motors, and other outputs. The Digital Sandbox is
equipped with everything, on board, that you will need to complete 13
experiments including controlling an LED, measuring how loud things
are, detecting what the temperature is, and more. Think of this as a
SparkFun Inventor's Kit all in one board!

By interfacing the Sandbox to your computer via a USB cable, the
Sandbox can be programmed using the popular Arduino programming
environment. To further simplify the learning experience, we've
designed the Sandbox and its guide around using a simple, "blocky",
programming add-on to Arduino called, Ardublock. Using ArduBlock - a
simple, graphical version of the popular Arduino programming language
- you will be able to program all of the experiments with a simple
graphical interface instead of writing code.

The full-color Digital Sandbox Guide (included) contains step by step
instructions of how to connect each circuit with the included parts.
Full example code is provided and explained and even includes
troubleshooting tips if something goes wrong. The kit does not require
any soldering and is recommended for beginners ages 8 and up.

Note: There are three additional circuit experiments included in the
DS Guide that will require the Digital Sandbox Add-On pack. Circuit
