Genuino 101 Board Announcement at Maker Faire 2015

Posted by on October 21, 2015

A very special collaboration meant to transform education was announced last weekend at the Maker Faire Rome. Massimo Banzi and Josh Walden (Senior Vice President of Intel) announced the new Genuino 101 board that will help bring technology into the classrooms around the globe as part of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) education.
The board features a 32-bit Intel® Quark™ microcontroller for minimal power consumption, 384 kB of flash memory, 80 kB of SRAM (24kB available for sketches), an integrated DSP sensor hub, Bluetooth* Low Energy radio, and 6-axis combo sensor with accelerometer and gyroscope.
Arduino 101 will be incorporated into the Creative Technologies in the Classroom (CTC) physical computing curriculum developed and tested and currently deployed in over 300 schools. CTC is the world’s first formal physical computing curriculum for elementary and secondary school classrooms and provides educators with the tools, support and confidence needed to introduce their students to the foundations of programming, electronics and mechanics.*

We are very proud about the success of our CTC educational program and how it is evolving into relevant collaborative work. We are glad to take part into shaping the future minds that will change the way technology is used, developed, improved and shared.
