STEM (standing for science, technology, engineering and mathematics) kits have become increasingly relevant as educational institutions slowly switch from traditional to more hands-on learning experiences. With us today, we have the Raspberry Pi Pico Advanced kit from renowned makerspace company Elecrow – which has extensive experience in designing such sets, especially aimed at younger audiences. We feel that the equipment provided here, as well as the online documentation have been carefully selected and thought out.

The focus of the set is the Raspberry Pi Pico MCU board which is at the heart of most projects – usually based around sensor input, some processing and output on one of the peripheral devices provided.

The kit contains 32 modules which can be combined in a variety of ways. There are also 32 projects documented online which are designed to teach the user a variety of concepts in programming and electronics.

It’s also worth noting that the central project of the kit is a toy car – equipped with sensors and servo motors. This toy car is designed to be placed on the provided mat and uses its sensors to follow the black line automatically. It’s a neat little project which is probably going to remain assembled even after everything else has been completed.

The quality of all parts is adequate for the purpose. It’s clear that the kit is aimed at the educational market and that the highest precision and data integrity are not essential here.
