Arduino Tools

Basic Electronics Arduino ShieldIf you work with plants, you may have tools like spades, rakes, and trimmers.  If you work with Arduino, you’ll have a different set of tools ranging from hardware (like an Arduino Shield) to software (like the Arduino IDE –Integrated Development Environment).

The lessons that follow highlight different tools that are used with Arduino, I hope you’ll find them helpful!
