Introducing AWS IoT EduKit Powered by M5STACK


We are thrilled to announce that we partner with AWS. 

The AWS IoT EduKit-A prescriptive learning program that makes it easy to learn how to build IoT solutions using AWS services. It comes equipped with a Microchip ATECC608A Trust&GO secure element, in addition to the existing features of the standard M5Stack Core2 and M5GO Bottom2.


Introducing AWS IoT EduKit

AWS introduces AWS IoT EduKit, an easy way to learn to build IoT applications using AWS services through a prescriptive learning program. AWS IoT EduKit helps developers – from students to experienced engineers and professionals – receive hands-on experience building end-to-end IoT applications by combining a reference hardware kit with a set of easy to follow guides and example code. To learn more, please visit AWS IoT Edukit. 

Developers can get started by purchasing the reference hardware kit from M5Stack, an AWS partner. The reference hardware kit includes a touch screen for controls, and commonly used IoT sensors including temperature, accelerometer, gyro, and mic. The kit is powered by an Espressif ESP32 micro-controller, and includes a security chip from Microchip for maintaining hardware root of trust. The reference hardware kit supports FreeRTOS, Arduino, and MicroPython—allowing developers to select their preferred software framework for their IoT applications. To purchase your reference hardware kit visit or the M5Stack store.

Once you receive the hardware kit, access the getting started guide and follow the steps to install the Espressif RainMaker Mobile App on your phone. The Espressif RainMaker Mobile App will allow you to control the AWS IoT EduKit reference hardware and connect to AWS IoT. Next, you can select from a list of free projects available on AWS IoT EduKit's website. Start with building a basic connected home application and progress over time to running a machine learning model with Amazon SageMaker Autopilot or building a Voice Assisted Smart Home application with Alexa Voice Service Integration for AWS IoT (AFI).
