SparkFun Inventor Electronic Kit v3.2 for Arduino Uno
SparkFun Inventor Electronic Kit v3.2 for Arduino Uno: 16 learning stages
For all children aged 10 and over, this SparkFun Inventor Kit is a complete learning guide for familiarising beginners with the basics of electronic circuit programming and assembly.
It contains numerous electronic and electrical components (LEDs, transistors, resistors, etc.), a DC motor and a servo motor, without forgetting the nerve centre of any electronic circuit, i.e. the Arduino Uno programming board, accompanied by a solderless breadboard and a holder for both these essential items!
As a young inventor, you’ll have everything you need to successfully complete the 16 experiments described in the SparkFun Inventor Kit (SIK) guide. 16 steps that will help beginners from the age of 10 to learn not only how to assemble various different circuits, but also to understand the basics of the Arduino language and, ultimately, to program in Arduino.
No soldering is required to carry out these 16 fun experiments with Arduino Uno. All budding inventors will need is to show a little patience and to want to progress!
Worth knowing about the SparkFun Arduino Uno Inventor Kit
SparkFun has designed 2 kits for newbie inventors on Arduino: the SparkFun Inventor Electronic Kit v3.2 for Beginners, which works with the RedBoard, and the Inventor Electronic Kit v3.2 for Arduino Uno.
To make the packaging lighter (and therefore reduce transport and delivery costs), SparkFun has removed the carrying case and SIK guide (paper copy) from this second kit.
This guide is now available online only, but features the same lessons and experiments and gives the same step-by-step advice.
The first Inventor Kit for Beginners is also for sale on our site.
