Arduino Mode with Breakout Connectors
Since FunKey has a full Arduino chip onboard, you can program it in Arduino mode with the Arduino IDE, if and when you and your students are ready. But even at that level it’s a better Arduino board than anything out there, because it has easily accessible and clearly marked inputs and outputs. You don't need to use a breadboard and a lot of dangling wire, which are difficult to work with and hard to assemble and keep track of. In addition, using the enclosed screws, you can build the FunKeySuper board, sensors and outputs directly into a Lego or FoamCore construction.
