I’m looking at starting a club for 6th grade kids to learn about programming. I thought the idea of working with the real world with physical sensors, lights sounds etc. would be interesting to them. So I’m looking at platforms. Obviously arduino comes to mind especially with the low cost sensors etc. of the grove platform. The only problem is that I really don’t care much for arduinos.
So I started thinking what about using a FEZ Cerbuino Bee with a grove shield for easy component attachment. Has anyone done this? Can you see any pitfalls to this idea. I really like working in VS and like the added features I can get with .netmf
Thanks for your input.
