The SparkFun Inventor’s Kit (SIK) is a great way to get started with programming and hardware interaction with the Arduino programming language. The SIK includes everything you need to complete 16 circuits that will teach you how to read sensors, display information on an LCD, drive motors, and more. You don’t need any previous programming or electronics experience to use this kit. The kit does not require any soldering and is recommended for beginners ages 10 and up.
The full-color SIK Guidebook (included) contains step by step instructions of how to connect each circuit with the included parts. Full example code is provided and explained and even includes troubleshooting tips if something goes wrong.
Unfortunately, the mold used to create our SIK carrying cases broke during their last production when it moved from China to the United States. Therefore, all units of the SIK Special Edition will not have a the normal carrying case when you receive them, but instead one of our tried and true red boxes at a reduced price. However, anyone who buys this special edition SIK will receive an carrying case, in a separate shipment at no cost to you, when we have cases again. This creates the perfect opportunity to buy one of our classic SIKs at a reduced price without losing anything!
Note: All orders of this special edition will get a case shipped To the same address, at no cost, when the supply situation is resolved. Tentatively, this means cases shipped to you by March.
