SparkFun Inventor's Kit for Arduino with Retail Case

This is the 'retail' version of the SparkFun Inventor's Kit (SIK). This version comes with the carrying case seen in the pictures, where the standard version does not. You can buy the case separately though if you wish.

zOMG! This kit has it all. It now includes the new Arduino Uno R3, the fabled baseplate, and all the sensors you can shake a stick at. This version includes a plastic carrying case to organize all the components. 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 12 basic circuits, no soldering required! On top of that, we've joined forces with Oomlout to offer a small booklet to get you started. The SIK comes with everything pictured and a 36 page color printed 'starter' guide. The guide will take a complete novice and get them:

  • Blinking LEDs
  • Controlling a toy motor
  • Controlling a servo
  • Making (bad) music
  • Responding to buttons
  • Twisting a volume knob
  • Detecting ambient light
  • Reading temperature
  • Controlling big devices
  • Mixing LED colors

We believe these to be the building blocks of any electronics project. Once these concepts are mastered, very impressive projects are possible using simple recombinations. No soldering required. We recommend this kit for beginners ages 10 and up.

Note: There is an error with CIRC-03. Omit the 10K resistor and hook pin 9 directly to the base of the transistor.

Note: This kit includes the new Arduino Uno R3, but the documentation is not yet updated to reflect this. Nothing should change, but keep in mind the pictures might not match exactly.

Note: This product is a collaboration with Oomlout. A portion of each sales goes back to them for product support and continued development.
