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 new and improved carrying case seen in the pictures, where the standard version does not come with a case. You can buy the case separately (check the related products below) though if you wish.

zOMG! 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, we've 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:

  • 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
  • More!

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. If you can't find the instruction booklet, it is in the secret compartment on the underside of the carrying case.
