Smart Plug is a do-it-yourself IOT (Internet of Things) kit for children through which your child can switch ON/OFF any appliance at your home via the app your child builds on his phone.
What will you learn?
1. Internet of Things (IOT) - Very often we see that children learn something in textbooks but do not know what it really is in practical life. Smart Plug is a hands-on kit through which your child will understand how new age technologies such as IOT, Cloud Computing actually work in reality and more importantly, apply these concepts in his daily life.
2. App development - Through this kit your child will also learn how a app can be built in a simple way and how it can be made to control physical devices.
SECTION 1 : LEARN FOUNDATIONS
In this session the students will be introduced to Internet of Things, applications, practical uses and benefits of this new age technology.
Students will be taught the foundations blocks of IOT - namely - Sensors, Communication Link Up, Server and Mobile User Interface.
The various components used in the kit to set up an IOT System will be introduced.
SECTION 2 : MAKE
In this session students will be introduced to Cloud Based Set up of the Kit.
In this session the students will be guided to create an IOT based Mobile Application.
They will be introduced to loading the code to the Microprocessor.
Finally they will use the KIT to test a Test Case.
Students will be shown real life applications and use of this technology.
Students will get access to additional references and resources to expand their skills.
1. Graphical Programming -
- Graphical programming is a simple drag and drop coding method thus enabling children who do not even know coding to be able to make their own apps easily.
2. Practical Applications -
- This kit has a pre-assembled smart plug which is connected to a home appliance. This smart plug can be programmed via the USB cable (in the kit) thus enabling your child to control any device via the app he creates on his mobile phone.
3. Do-It-Yourself kit for children -
- It has been scientifically proven that a hands-on approach helps children learn faster and retain longer. Our do-it-yourself kits are specially designed for children to enable them to learn new age technologies in a simple and engaging way.
4. Online Course -
- Through this kit your child will have access to online course content thus helping your child understand all the aspects of IOT in a comprehensive way.
5. Easy to use Instruction Manual + Assembly Videos + On Call Support -
- We have made a simplified instruction manual which a child can easily follow. We have assembly videos on our site and social media. Also, if your child still gets stuck somewhere, we are just a call away thus guranteeing success.
We want your child to be a creator of technology vs consumers of technology. We will be facilitators in this process. You can simply rely on us!
