Cadet... Do you copy?... Your Ship Is Dead..."
We’re sorry to say it, but you seem to be stuck 100 feet underwater on some alien planet. No worries though, we’ve dealt with this situation thousands of times.
We know this may sound overwhelming, but you need to learn to code and wire so you can fix your destroyed control panel.
While you’re at it, we detected a few other “minor ” repairs you will need to complete. Your solar panel is offline, the air ballast system has failed, your security systems aren’t working, and the worst problem of all, your entertainment system is down.
Again, nothing to stress out over, it’s all fixable with the right tools and training. This repair kit has an excellent success rate and will walk you step by step through each repair mission.
It will take you exactly thirty days to repair your shuttle and we will guide you through all the steps necessary, from coding to wiring up your fancy new hardware setup.
Starting with those dang lights, it’s kind of hard to fix complex systems if you can’t see them. Then we will work all the way to getting your shuttle out of the water and off this backward planet!
Problem-solve your way out of all the messy consequences of getting stranded on an alien planet. Every day we will be working together to get you off that unfamiliar planet and getting closer to your return home. We will challenge you, quiz you, reward you, and be there for you when you need help. It won't be the easiest thing you've done but after this 30-day challenge, you will have the knowledge to build your own projects from scratch!
Chapter 1: Getting you out of the darkness and into the cozy light. In this chapter you will learn how to use your HERO board and basic parts such as LED’s, resistors, the breadboard, and switches.
Chapter 2: Repair your damaged solar array and refuel your battery. In this chapter you will learn how to read data from your photoresistor and how to use a multi-colored LED.
Chapter 3: Locking down your ship with proper security systems and alarms. You will learn how to program and wire a keypad and a passive buzzer.
Chapter 4: Returning you back to the surface of the water and preparing you to get home. You will learn how to use a seven segment display and rotary encoder in these projects.
Chapter 5: Blast off… Wait – first we need to build you a working launch panel. This is where things get really fun and we add the OLED Display allowing you to have a mini monitor display for your control panel. Put everything together from the previous chapters and get ready to go into space.
Chapter 6: Defend your ship from incoming invaders and get home safely. In the final chapter you design your own mini-game using the OLED screen and inputs.
The only tool that we require you to have is a laptop or computer to program the HERO board and an internet connection to access the challenge. No screwdrivers, electric drills, or sharp hand tools needed for this kit!
We picked our best of the best to save you.
Dr. Greg Lyzenga (when he’s not performing live-saving missions) is normally found teaching college classes at Harvey Mudd. Along with that Dr. Lyzenga is often seen working with his fellow scientists at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory.
Being an avid astronomer, rocket enthusiast, and professor – we knew he would be your best shot at repairing your shuttle and having a successful return home.
(Authors note: It is such a great honor working with Dr. Lyzenga. His dedication to helping others and teaching is forever inspiring. This course, brand, and world would not be the same without him. -Austin)
We're tossing in three of our top e-books on how to build more projects with your HERO board. This adds an additional 50+ projects and a ton of fun! We also included a mini crash course so you can get caught up on the technical terms we use like Amperage, Voltage, and Wattage.
