The SparkFun Inventor’s Kit (SIK) is the best way to get started with Arduino! It bundles together a Sparkfun RedBoard, a case full of popular electronic components, as well as a fun, easy-to-follow project book. You don't need any experience to get started with the SIK and each project you complete adds to your skill set. The final project which is a fully autonomous robot is something you can really show off to your other maker friends. Instant envy!

The project book is a full-colour, spiral bound course in Arduino which includes detailed instructions, wiring diagrams, coding examples, and info about each component. It also explains the fundamental electronics and programming concepts at the heart of every project using easy-to-understand language and terms.

Best of all, the kit doesn't require soldering or prior skills and is recommended for anyone aged 10 and over. The Sparkfun Inventors Kit v4.0 builds on the community feedback and experience of previous versions but introduces an increased focus on robotics and autonomy. Rather than grinding through each component and introducing difficult concepts, each new piece of gear is weaved into the experience of a fun project which creates a rewarding learning experience.

Far from being a standalone kit, the SIK is perfect for someone getting started with electronics or looking to add to their workbench. You can combine it with other kits and components, creating a unique introduction to electronics. If you want to take your Inventor's Kit to the next level, Sparkfun have released the SIK Add-On Pack v4.0 which includes all of the components from the v3 kit (plus some extra ones) to provide the ultimate prototyping experience.

  • 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 :)...

  • Hey guys! First time poster. I've been working on a blaster for my girlfriend's costume, and I thought I would share it with everyone. When triggered, it plays a selected sound effect and flashes the light. Pretty simple :)
  • 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...
  • The Hipster Coaster
  • We wanted to make a interactive display of the fun that can be had with DIY projects to take to Sydney Mini Maker Faire. We decided to do so by utilising the TinkerKit Braccio from Arduino.org, alongside some 3D Printing ingenuity, for an engaging display for all ages. 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...

  4. Review by Eugene verified purchaser

    Excellent learning tool when starting out.
    Got to see little quirks with the Arduino Uno before starting my real projects.
    Teaches you about the serial monitor early on [important, since I've found sometimes basic arithmetic calculations, can produce incorrect results (can check by copying and pasting your code into a C program since the Arduino more or less uses C) and this will help you where find out where things have gone wrong]... The serial monitor is something I may have missed had I just gone straight into trying to make something. (Posted on 18/05/2018)
