So, you have an Arduino and you want to do more than blink the on-board LED, right? You’re going to need a way to hook up circuits and sensors, so you need a MakerShield! The MakerShield kit is available exclusively in the Maker Shed and works with Netduino, Arduino, and shield compatible clones. The MakerShield comes un-assembled and can be soldered together in around 30 minutes. It has a number of great features such as two on-board LEDs, a button, and a 10K potentiometer. The prototyping area even fits one of our mini breadboards (not included) for handy prototyping.

Want to find out more? Check out Make: Projects for directions on how to build it and how to use the button!

I am the Evangelist for the Maker Shed. It seems that there is no limit to my making interests. I’m a tinkerer at heart and have a passion for solving problems and figuring out how things work. When not working for Make I can be found falling off my unicycle, running in adverse weather conditions, skiing down the nearest hill, restoring vintage motorcycles, or working on my car.
