The SparkFun Inventor's Kit for Arduino (formally 'Arduino Inventor's Kit') is a box of goodies to get the very beginner (and future inventors!) started with programmable electronics. It includes all the bits you need to build many basic circuits, no soldering required!
This kit has all the things! It includes the Arduino Uno R3, the new and improved baseplate, and all the sensors you can shake a stick at. The SparkFun Inventor's Kit for Arduino is a box of goodies to get the very beginner started with programmable electronics. It includes all the bits you need to build a series of basic circuits, no soldering required!
On top of that, SparkFun have created a brand new and improved edition of the full-color SIK manual! Updated graphics, code revisions and in-depth instruction have been added to make learning basic electronics even easier! Make your way through the example circuits and you'll learn all about:
Once you've mastered the above concepts, you'll be ready to design and build your own circuits, so why not get started now?
Note: No soldering required. We recommend this kit for beginners ages 10 and up.
Note: This kit normally contains the SMD version of the Arduino Uno. Functionally identical to the DIP package version, just can't swap the chip out. Not an issue for most people.
