  • Be part of the worldwide movement today!

    Join thousands of young makers as they embark on their journey in programming, electronics and mechanics through a series of playful, well-documented projects and easy to assemble experiments

  • Self-initiated projects

    Working in groups, all learners will apply what they have learnt to construct their very own project based on the ideas and inspirations that they came up with collectively.

    Blended digital learning

    The online platform contains documentation and videos needed to successfully explore all of the CTC concepts and over 20 hands-on projects. Teachers can facilitate a range of pedagogical approach, from flipped classroom to differentiated instruction.

    Learn through making

    CTC is an immersive educational experience consisting of an online platform, video tutorials, detailed documentation with step-by-step instructions, a classroom toolbox with more than 20 hands-on experiments based on themed modules.

    Experiment with authentic embedded technologies

    Learn to build more than 20 different embedded projects with the Arduino 101 toolkit and modify them to suit your own project requirements.

    Be certified officially

    Upon completion of the CTC project, you will get a diploma as a certificate or proof that you have participated in the CTC project.

    Inspire others with your projects

    Share and explain how your project work at the CTC technology faires by showcasing them. Likewise, learn from other participants with interesting projects and show them your appreciation.

  • Programme delivery

    The programme is delivered to the students often been broken down to 5 sessions of instructor training, 8 weeks of running the different modules, and 9 weeks for students to develop their own projects which cumulates in a 1 day project showcase. During the showcase, or faire, the students get a chance to demonstrate their work and receive feedback. The CTC program is flexible, and can be planned to fit the needs of the participating schools.

  • Arduino CTC 101

    The Arduino CTC 101 programme is facilitated by Espert Pte Ltd, a Singapore-based edtech company who has been actively involved in promoting STEM education and maker movement in Singapore and beyond

    History

    Espert's association with Arduino goes way back to 2011 when Espert co-founder, William Hooi attended an interaction design workshop conducted by Arduino co-founder in Lugano, Switzerland.

    Singapore Arduino Community

    Having been inspired by what Arduino can do to spark interest in maker movement, William helped to organized the first Singapore Arduino Day in Singapore in 2014.

    Massimo visits Singapore

    During Massimo's visit to Singapore in 2016, the idea of the Arduino CTC was mooted. By May 2017, Espert is certified as an educational partner and trainer for the Arduino CTC 101 programme.

    Building the next cool thingamajig..

    We look forward to working in partnership our local educational institution to level their competency in embedded technologies through the Arduino CTC as well as the maker community in general.

  • About Espert

    Espert Pte. Ltd. is a technology education company that develops hardware and facilitate learning through making programmes focusing on science, technology, engineering, arts and mathematics (STEAM) education.

     

    Started in 2015 as an Internet of Things (IoT) technology company that provides an integrated development platform for novice learners and makers to build their own IoT products, services and solutions, we are now committed to championing technology in education by working with popular platforms which includes Arduino, micro:bit and RaspberryPi.

    We also developed the ESPresso line of Arduino-compatible hardware based on Espressif System's ESP8266 Wi-Fi chipset.
