What is Crumble and why do we use it?

The Crumble is an easy-to-use programmable micro-controller.  Using the Crumble controller we learn about computational approaches using simple block-based programming.  Using physical components makes the learning more real – seeing something you have wired up and programmed come to life. 
Many machines use microcontrollers and this is a great start to understand how they are used and where they can be embedded.
