Arduino WiFi Shield 101 is the new IoT enabler shield based on the ATWINC1500 module, developed with ATMEL, that connects your Arduino to the internet wirelessly!
Connecting it to a WiFi network is simple, no further configuration in addition to the SSID and the password are required. The WiFi Shield 101 comes with an easy-to-use library that allow to connect you Arduino board to internet with few instructions. The WiFi Shield 101 also features a complete asymmetric (public/private) hardware key cryptographic signature solution that is an ultra secure method to provide key agreement for encryption/decryption, specifically designed for the IoT market.
As always with Arduino, every element of the platform – hardware, software and documentation – are freely available and open-source. This means you can learn exactly how it’s made and use its design as the starting point for your own projects.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
