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.

  • My ghostbusters proton pack
  • Hi all. Thought I'd share with you my modded Spirit Halloween proton pack. It's about 80% scale, which is plenty big enough for my 7-year-old son, and still looks decently sized on adults. As soon as I learned of this pack, 5-year-old me just had to get one. And I had just gotten my Arduino beginners kit a week earlier. I knew what had to be done :)...

  • Coffee Grinder With Arduino
  • Using a few bits and pieces, this ordinary coffee grinder now has two presets to run the motor for a programmable length of time. The idea being that the grinder running for a set amount of time will deliver a certain amount of coffee each button press meaning the beans can be stored unground, keeping them fresher for longer. I completed this project for a friend, Ian, who lives for coffee. Ian wanted the same functionality in h...

Enter the Hipster Coaster in all its glory.   All the parts were printed seperately on our family of Lulzbot 3D Printers, later stuck together using a mi...

    All components came individually packed & labelled, the Uno & shield in anti-static plastic, the rest in mini ziplock bags. Great for beginners learning to identify parts and to keep parts neatly. Their online tutorial is surprisingly good. (Posted on 30/07/2018)

    While I haven't completed many projects with this kit, it seems like good value for what you get in the box. Comes in a nice box but would be better if there were dividers for all the small components. Detailed instructions are not included but available from the DFRobot website. (Posted on 8/01/2018)

    Great price for what you get.
    Tutorials clear, easy to follow and set out in a logical manner.
    Excellent introduction to Arduino as it covers many aspects of it as well as prompting further self-learning through optional exercises.

    Seems like a good quality product. Good that it comes in a plastic case rather than a cardboard box. Would be good if there was an obvious link to the product tutorial document as it took a bit of searching to find this. Also there are 2 extra pins on the board that are not on the project cards or on some of the diagrams in the tutorial. This had us a bit confused for quite a while - 'ground' was not the second pin from the left after all. (Posted on 2/01/2017)

    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)
