Arduino 101 will be incorporated into the physical computing course for elementary and secondary schools, created by Arduino.

Today, Intel along with the founders of Arduino, unveiled Arduino 101 (U.S.) and Genuino 101 (outside the U.S.) the first maker development board based on the tiny, low power Intel® CurieTM module. Arduino 101 is affordable and easy-to-use for both foundational learning exercises and prototyping smart, connected devices making it ideal for entry-level makers and education environments. The board will also be incorporated into Arduino’s physical computing course, Creative Technologies in the Classroom (CTC), in an effort to build students’ technology skillsets through hands-on projects in coding, collaborating and making. Arduino 101 will be available in the first quarter of 2016 for a suggested retail price of $30 USD. Learn more about Arduino 101 here.
