Do you want to learn what makes an Arduino tick? Check out the MintDuino, available exclusively in the Maker Shed! It’s an Arduino in its most simple form and it’s perfect for anyone interested in learning or teaching the fundamentals of how microcontrollers work. Everything you need to build the Mintduino is included in the reusable mint tin. Just follow the extensive online build documentation, add a 9V battery and FTDI programmer (neither included), and you’ll be up and running in no time. After you build your MintDuino, hone your wiring and programming skills with the MintDuino Maker Press book. It will take you from lighting an LED to building a 2 player game!
