Arduino launches four new STEAM kits via electronics360

During this week’s Bett trade show in London, Arduino has launched four new STEAM (science, technology, engineering, art and math) kits for students from lower secondary school through the university level.

The four products include a motions expansion kit, an engineering kit, an educational starter kit and an internet of things (IoT) starter kit.

The CTC GO! Motions Expansion Pack is designed for secondary school students to teach STEAM topics with complex programming concepts. The pack is built for those already accustomed to using STEAM tools and applying that knowledge in the real world. The pack also helps introduce students to motors and transmission mechanisms such as pulleys and gear concepts that help develop logical reasoning, hands-on building skills and problem-solving skills.

The IoT Starter Kit is for secondary school and university students to get started with building automated devices using sensors, automation, logging, graphing and analyzing sensor data as well as triggering events with serious technology made simple. The kit contains tutorials for 10 different projects.

Elsewhere Online: AT&T's Spam Filter Gets A Bit Too Aggressive

This story from TechDirt lays out yet another reason I recommend that folks DON'T use the email provided to them by their ISP. My typical recommendation right now is to get a Gmail account instead. It also points out why I want to manage all my SPAM on my end, without pre-filtering from an ISP. I will gladly manage my spam if it helps to insure that I see as many of my "real" messages as possible. Again, Gmail's tools work pretty good in this regard. Having an alternative email account also insures you will keep the same email, even if you decide to leave your current ISP. Witness all the folks holding onto AOL accounts just to keep their AOL email address. Thank goodness at least that is free now. AT&T's Spam Filter Gets A Bit Too Aggressive You can certainly understand why ISPs offer spam filters. It's a service for users who don't want to be totally bombarded with spam. But what I've never understood is that these ISPs rarely give the user a

On my iPhone…IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS

IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS My best description of IFTTT, both their main web site, and this new iOS app is "a scripting language for the We." It allows you to set up "recipes" that watch one particular service, like Feedly, Evernote, Gmail and more, and then take action on another service whenever a particular action occurs. I use this to automatically save my shared items from Feedly and elsewhere into an Evernote Notebook and also use it to post automatically post information on a variety of services. The iOS app adds to this functionality by allowing you to take various actions on your phone and triggering IFTTT actions whenever they occur. In the case of the iPhone, initiating actions can include adding new contacts to your iPhone, taking a new picture and more.  For more complete information on how IFFTT works, visit    From the iTunes App Store...
