Arduino is a cheap and useful skill everyone should learn. Once you do you’ll find an amazing community of people building awesome projects with easy to follow instructions and open-source examples you can copy and modify.

Arduino is a flexible and easy-to-learn open source development platform that enjoys great fame among makers, hackers and interactive artists. We are using the Elecrow Advanced Kit for Arduino helps you get more knowledge of Arduino than the Elecrow start kit for Arduino. It contains the most popular accessories for DIY projects such as PIR sensor, Flame sensor, serial WIFI, 4-Digit Display, I2C LCD, etc. With the straightforward instructions with the kit, you can easily dig into the Arduino world and start your own Arduino project.

Crowtail is a modular, ready-to-use toolset, it takes a building block approach to assemble electronics. It simplifies and condenses the learning process significantly.

The Crowtail products are basic-functional modules that consist of a Base Shield and various modules with standardized connectors, each Crowtail module has its specific functions, such as light-sensing or temperature sensing. With these Crowtail modules, users do not need to deal with the mess of jumper wires or debug the electronic circuits, they can just plug the Crowtail modules into the base shield and then play!
