The Arduino starter kit
The Arduino Starter Kit contains everything needed to make 15 progressive projects described in a color book included in the kit. This Arduino kit is ideal to discover the Arduino technology and learn about electronics and circuits for the realization of your own gadgets based on Arduino.
You can also find this kit with a book written in French on our website.
