I am wanting to do a one off project with my school pupils to build a system that controls via bluetooth a solenoid to turn a tap on and off.
I have used Gadgeteer a little bit but would like to try arduino.
I would appreciate some help with what parts I need to buy as I know with Gadgeteer only some mainboards would support certain expansion boards.
In my simple mind I see that I need a Mainboard (which one would you advise), a bluetooth sender and receiver (again which one would you suggest) and finally a motor driver board to run the solenoid (again which would you suggest).
This is not a post where I want it done for me or the program writing, just pointing me in the right direction would be great. Thanks
