DFRobot have upgraded the Beginner Kit for Arduino! The latest revision (v3.0) kit comes with a ton of components, 15 projects and some prototyping tools that will make your first journey into Arduino as straight forward as possible. The kit is still the same affordable price, so you and your wallet can thank DFRobot for keeping it at this great price point.
 
The Beginner Kit is an educational & breezy welcome to the world of hobby electronics and digital interaction. This kit was made for the people out interested in learning about Arduino and maker electronics. You'll start off blinking an LED before moving to environmental sensor's and infrared communication with remote controls. This kit and it's accompanying PDF (see the Resources tab above) will lead you through the world of the ATmega328 Microcontroller and interactive computing. You needn't pull your hair out in frustration when your circuit plays up either, as the projects are all well documented, it makes any troubleshooting a breeze.
 
A DFRduino UNO R3 comes with your kit, ready to plug in and program. It's completely compatible with Arduino Uno and the Arduino IDE, it's just built by DFRobot. DFRobot's best selling protoshield allows you to breadboard/prototype right on top of the Uno too. Any Protoshield is a welcome addition to a beginner kit, DFRobot has made your life a lot easier and included it in this kit!
 
This version of the Beginner kit has seen upgrades right across the board. In addition to the quality jumper wires, double the resistors in the same package, a bunch more LEDs, a 9 gram micro servo, an IR remote transmitter and receiver, you get 4 extra components. Those components are a relay, a DC motor, DC fan and potentiometer. All these extra components let you build and make more projects and also get creative once you have built up a decent foundation of Arduino knowledge.

The project reference cards that come in the box have wiring guides and parts lists for each project in the kit. They are extremely to have if you don't have a PC handy for the PDF reference.

    Great product, packed well & shipped out on the same day! and I have to be clear in that the quality of all the components which make up this kit is nothing short of excellent. Very happy with my purchase and would highly recommend to anyone looking for a good quality Arduino beginner kit!

    This looks like a great beginners kit with plenty of predesigned project cards describing circuits and required components. I can't wait to set some of these up and play. (Posted on 27/09/2016)

    I first bought this kit to see if it would be a suitable birthday present for my 11 year old grandson. Poor kid he is not getting it. I guess will have to buy another one.
    I have not had this much fun since I was a fresh Engineering graduate. So I am now into hobby robotics big time.
    Recommended as a great starting point for any young person who wants to learn computing and control systems. (Posted on 22/08/2016)

    Great product easy to use just need to put a little more info on the projects and more projects. It doesn't tell you where you can find the code fo4 the projects and when i recieved it the battery holder was stuffed up

    Core Electronics (Graham) - Thanks for your review Joshua! Incredibly unlucky situation re the battery holder and we did send you a replacement. Re educational content; just follow the URLs on the printed project cards. This kit is awesome value as the educational content is online based, meaning you get more "gear" in the kit at a much lower cost. All the best with your projects! (Posted on 20/06/2016)

    There seems to be so many options when you're first getting into Arduino. I found this starter kit was great. It has everything you need to get started quickly. I had my first project up and running within half an hour. (Posted on 19/10/2015)

    While I ordered this product, Core Electronics was out of stock. As it was for a Christmas present, they worked extremely hard to get me an in stock substitute product. Their service is truly exceptional. (Posted on 29/12/2014)
