The Arduino Starter Kit is a great way to get started learning and making with Arduino coding and electronics! The kit includes the components you need to make 15 fun projects following the step-by-step tutorials in the included projects book.

With this kit, you’ll learn the hands-on way through building numerous creative projects, starting with simple circuits and progressing to complex inventions that enable you to control the physical world with sensor and actuators.

Projects you can make:

  1. Get to Know Your Tools: An introduction to the basics.

  2. Spaceship Interface: Design a control panel for a starship.

  3. Love-O-Meter: Measure how hot-blooded you are.

  4. Color Mixing Lamp: Produce any color with a lamp that uses light as an input.

  5. Mood Cue: Let people know how you’re doing.

  6. Light Theremin: Create a musical instrument you play by waving your hands.

  7. Keyboard Instrument: Play music with this keyboard.

  8. Digital Hourglass: A light-up hourglass that can stop you from working too much.

  9. Motorized Pinwheel: A colored wheel that will make your head spin.

  10. Zoetrope: Create a mechanical animation you can play – and play in reverse.

  11. Crystal Ball: A mystical tour to answer all your tough questions.

  12. Knock Lock: Unlock a door with a secret knock.

  13. Touchy-Feely Lamp: A lamp that responds to your touch.

  14. Tweak the Arduino Logo: Control your personal computer from your Arduino.

  15. Hacking Buttons: Create a master control for all of your devices!

After you’ve mastered this knowledge, you’ll have a palette of software and circuits that you can use to create something beautiful and make someone smile with what you invent. Then, build it, hack it, and share it!

“The product packaging for the Arduino Starter Kit is well-thought-out, labeled, and organized. When you are unboxing your materials, I would recommend having space dedicated to the project itself as it requires many small parts. Completing the projects was straightforward and easy to understand while using the included project book. The projects are easy to follow without much background in electronics, and they cover many topics and skills. Overall, I would recommend these kits for any student or parent wanting to learn the basics of coding and electronics from home. As a parent and a teacher who had to teach both virtually and at home, these kits would make a great addition to both my STEM lesson plans and my homeschooling experience. They require very little adult input past the organization phase. Overall I had a very positive experience.”

“The Arduino Student Kit offers engaging coding experiences for a wide range of students, regardless of their level of experience. The hands-on kit provides opportunities for independence and growth by teaching introductory students the basics of electronics while also enabling more experienced students to create their own projects. The illustrations in the project book make the kit easy to use, and working with the various components to create different projects is just plain fun! I would recommend this kit to any educator or parent wanting to develop students’ coding skills, whether in the classroom, remotely, or at home. ”
