Description
 
Phidgets are real-world USB sensors that are ideal for computer science students in grades 9-12. Whether you use Java, Python, C#, or Swift in your classroom, Phidgets has you covered.
 
Start with our introductory kit (the Getting Started Kit), which includes LEDs, pushbuttons, a temperature/humidity sensor, and a VINT Hub Phidget. The kit has a self-guided, online course and provides students with everything they need to get started. Check it out here: phidgets.com/start. Afterward, choose from one of our advanced kits, or create your own—With hundreds of sensors and controllers, no project is out of reach.

Testimonials
 
A success! The clear instructions were easy to follow and students thought the Phidgets project was fun and interesting to code. They even spent extra time personalizing it.

Phidgets aren’t limiting like other platforms. They've allowed my students to extend their projects further in computer science, robotics, and even with Unity.
