BeCREO kit is an interdisciplinary teaching aid developed in Poland: an innovative construction kit for students and a great tool to support the teacher in tutoring the basics of mechatronics and programming.
The optimal solution with its own application based on the step-by-step course formula.
Modules and accessories adapted for educational purposes.
Thought-through methodological approach.
Practical organizer box.
The construction set with a microcontroller, sensors, and accessories allows the implementation of general education core curriculum in the field of learning programming and computational thinking, as well as constructing technical models following the STEAM education approach.
BeCREO kit allows you to work by the project method and to carry out activities enhanced by the possibilities of 3D printing. It also enables students to create and test their own prototype solutions.
The set is distinguished by high-quality design project boards, specially adapted electronics, online print materials, and safe, regularly updated educational software.
Working with BeCREO kit creates an environment for in-class experimenting, analysis, and problem-solving of issues that students encounter in their everyday life.
Use the models developed by students to run experiments during various school subject classes.
The original BeCREO kit application adopts the course formula to teach project construction, visual (block-style), and text (C ++) programming in the Arduino environment. Step by step, the app guides students through the design process and supports the teacher's work without requiring many hours of preparation. Designed so that every teacher and student – beginner or advanced – can quickly start their adventure with mechatronics, construction, and programming!
The software is an integral, indefinite part of the set and does not require additional fees. The installable software enables students to acquire knowledge and skills in four modes.
In this mode, the students learn how the included electronics work, as well as how to connect and program them.
Lesson mode contains 23 lessons of programming and mechatronics course, where students combine theoretical knowledge with practical skills. They construct and then program their own working models, which can be successfully used in IT, technical and science classes, the school biological or physical laboratory, as well as other interdisciplinary activities.
Students test the acquired knowledge in practice by constructing working technical models, including Smart Home, Smart City, Weather Station, Traffic Light, and many others. It is a practical knowledge and skills training gained throughout the course.
In order to be able to pursue passions, create simple or advanced technical projects and use the acquired knowledge in the field of programming, robotics and mechatronics, an advanced microcontroller is necessary to "understand" the program and transmit coded commands to numerous modules connected to the system.
The heart of the BeCREO kit is the ARDUINO open educational ecosystem, which offers almost unlimited possibilities for creative algorithmic and interdisciplinary projects within the STEAM methodology.
The BeCREO kit works in six simple steps ...
Choose one of the available scenarios that you want to implement.
Use the wire to connect the modules to the Arduino Uno board to build a system that solves the given task.
Then put the project board for the selected scenario on the work area (construction base).
Create a program that will allow you to control the connected modules.
The next step is to send the program to the Arduino Uno and run it.
Check if the system you have built is working. Have fun!
All modules available in the construction kit correspond with carefully planned educational goals and allow students to achieve the expected results!
The BeCREO kit was created to work within the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) approach, which combines knowledge and experience from various areas and subjects in educational activities.
Teaching scenarios and implementing projects included in the BeCREO kit allows you to integrate students’ knowledge and skills from many disciplines of science, technology, engineering, mathematics, and art. It is also conducive to teamwork, the development of cooperation, communication, and project work skills.
Read what teachers and educators say about BeCREO kit.
BeCREO kit is a set of microcontrollers that will surely find its application in secondary school. Microcontrollers managed by the Arduino Uno programming platform allow you to expand your programming knowledge and allow students to be truly creative. We also have an application that allows us to create a program and send it to the platform. Students gain an opportunity to use the knowledge learned at elementary school which allows them to easily switch from simple coding to creating advanced programs, which can be viewed at any time simply by switching the appropriate tabs in the application. The included exercises and challenges will certainly allow them to test their knowledge and create their own original projects. BeCREO kit is a solution that should find its place in every school, and thanks to it, the students will consolidate the previously acquired knowledge of programming and expand it with new elements.
The access to the compendium, course, and then challenges makes the BeCREO kit a great educational tool for children and a little older DIY enthusiasts. The application allows a visual programming environment (block programming), which grants an easy start for children to learn and allows them to acquire the skills of logical and algorithmic thinking, which is desirable in the programming field. The well-thought-out construction of the set is compatible with LEGO® blocks, which allows you to be more creative during many hours of playing as a constructor and an engineer. The manufacturer also offers details for 3D printing, which brings the BeCREO kit into a new visual dimension. During my classes, the BeCREO kit is often used for our own projects - smart home, visual weather station, or even the control panel of the J spacecraft. Finally, I will only add that the product is 100% made in Poland, which has many advantages in terms of technical support. Regards. "We are limited only by our imagination"
BeCREO kit is an excellent teaching aid that introduces students to the world of programming and mechatronics. This is the next step in introducing the basics of programming in primary school. The program's friendly interface with step-by-step courses is not only a convenient tool for working with students but also an opportunity to learn the basics of mechatronics for teachers themselves. The ability to design, create and program your own projects is the best motivation to learn. I cannot imagine project work with programming elements without the use of the BeCREO kit.
