Warning: Price Increases When The Timer Runs Out
We’re sorry to say it, but you seem to have crashed on some alien planet.
Did you not see it on your radar? Whelp no worries, we’ve dealt with this situation thousands of times.
We know this may sound challenging, 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 may want 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.
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!
Getting you out of the darkness and into the cozy light. In the first few days you will learn how to use your HERO board and basic circuit components such as LED’s, resistors, the breadboard, and switches.
Next you need to 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.
You’ll need to lock down your ship with proper security systems and alarms. You will learn how to program and wire a keypad and a passive buzzer.
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.
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.
Your bundle of 10 LED’s and a RGB LED allowing you to choose between thousands of unique colors to display.
Your wires, resistors, and a mini breadboard. These tools allow us to build projects without needing to solder parts together.
Your OLED display allowing you to display data and text from the HERO board. This will be incredibly handy when we get to repairing the ships control panel.
Your passive buzzer allowing you to create tones and melodies from your code on the HERO board.
Your 3 position DIP switch so that you gain even more control over the components in your circuits.
Your custom 4×4 keypad so that you can have a large input array with many different use cases. This comes in handy when we start repairs on your ships security system.
Your rotary encoder allowing you to read data from how much you have rotated the encoder pin.
Your seven segment display allowing you to output data up to 4 digits. This format makes it great for digital clocks.
Allow me to introduce you to a remarkable individual who is about to become our beacon of hope and salvation.
Her name is Astrid, your spaceships personal AI who is ready to walk you through each mission.
Astrid brings with her a wealth of knowledge and a determination that knows no bounds. Astrid’s unwavering commitment to the mission at hand is matched only by her boundless compassion for those she seeks to save.
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, programmer, and a lifelong professor – we knew he would be your best shot at repairing your shuttle and having a successful return home.
Meet Alex and David. These two are the talented developers that will teach you how to program your control panel back to life.
David is among the best coders in the world. He’s a retired apple engineer that joined in because of his love for building cool projects.
And Alex, who is the cofounder of inventr.io (a really cool company).
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. You’ll also get our HERO introduction course teaching you how to build projects with your new board.
The United States, Canada, United Kingdom, and Australia. International orders have to pay for shipping.
No worries with your order today you get lifetime access to our training. There is no reward for completing this challenge within 30 days. You will be only rewarded for the completion of all the content.
When you first open the kit you will see a link to sign up for the course for free.
We ship all USA orders for free with 3 day USPS shipping
We’ve had students as young as 6 and as old as 91. Both had a great time exploring the kit. Often we see the best results with teens or retired geeks. Warning: This kit contains small and pokey parts such as LED’s and resistors. Child supervision is required.
Yes! If for some reason you didn’t have a good experience or you never opened it and lost interest we have a full 30 day money back guarantee. Just send it back to us before the 30 after your purchase arrives and we will return your payment. Refunds will take a few days to be posted to your account.
Our training easy to follow, however, this can be a downfall… if you just get in and rush through projects (copy and paste code) you won’t truly learn. You can complete most projects in the beginner training in 30-60 minutes each. Take your time to explore the training and think of each lesson as a new mental tool you can use in your maker toolkit. Once you learn how to make LED’s blink feel free to venture and create your own alternative to the main lesson – curiosity is the best teacher! Don’t stress about how many hours are optimal just work at your own comfortable pace and explore your own paths :).
