What else will I need that does not come with this curriculum?

For purchases of 5 or more robots, please see our GrovePi Classroom Kit.

  • GrovePi Base Kit
  • Raspberry Pi (works with any version of the Raspberry Pi)
  • Wi-Fi Dongle (requires our custom Wi-Fi Dongle, even for the Pi 3, because our software is not yet totally compatible with the onboard wifi)
  • microSD Card (with Dexter Industries custom software – available for purchase pre-loaded with our software or else you can download and image the cards yourself) *If you are using this in a school setting and don’t want to have to deal with your IT department to get the GoPiGo robot on your school network, we have another option which is very easy called “CINCH”. Please be sure to select a kit with the “CINCH” software. Read more about CINCH here.
