A Group of Gators is a "Congregation"

A gathering of SparkFun original products is affectionately referred to as a kit. The SparkFun gator:board ecosystem is now also available as a congregation. The more information we create and combine for the micro:bit and gator bit, the more useful the ecosystem becomes! Unfortunately, I can't say the same for all the wacky names for groups of animals I now know...

Sometimes a kit of SparkFun original products comes together so well that we forget to recognize all the additional work that goes into making it easy to use. Today we would like to feature all the tutorials that make these kits possible! The SparkFun gator:science Kit for micro:bit is the result of over eight months of product development across the SparkFun engineering and documentation teams. Check out all the individual tutorials and hookup guides below to see how this ecosystem has grown!
