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.

Components and Project Cards

Systematic Course Setup

Course Outline

There are 15 projects in the Arduino Getting Started tutorial to help you learn Adruino step by step from easy material to even the most difficult of concepts. The whole set of tutorials provides learning content for both the software and hardware systems. In the process of making interesting projects, you will not only learn programming knowledge such as variables and functions, but also understand the principles behind using electronic components such as light-emitting diodes, buzzers, and steering gears.

Detailed Tutorials Provided

Course Structure

Each course will guide you through a quick implementation of the project, stimulate your interest in learning, and then delve into the knowledge of electronics and programming. So, the structure of this curriculum is broken down into the following: “materials list --> hardware connection --> code writing --> code review --> hardware review.”

Different from other tutorials, this tutorial systematically explains how to interpret Arduino code and how to understand the principles of electronic circuits in order to help you make creative Arduino programming projects.

Arduino Tutorials

Project Cards

The beginner kit for Arduino includes 15 project cards with detailed circuit diagrams. The students can choose any project they want to start creating what they are interested in. The kit effectively helps teachers launch workshops at school.
