If you are an educator, or a student who is learning how to use an Arduino or other basic microcontroller, learning how to use a GPS module is a great way to go from blinking LEDs to interacting with the outside world. GPS modules are remarkably easy to use, and they open the door for many neat projects. Here are just a few projects to inspire you:
Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
