Our most popular educational kit, the SIK 4.1, is on sale now through June 15th while supplies last.
The SparkFun Inventor's Kit (SIK) is a comprehensive all-in-one kit that teaches embedded electronics through fun, project-based circuit building with no soldering and no programming experience necessary.
Now is the time to save on our best-selling, highest reviewed electronics kit just in time for the new School Year! We rarely discount these kits, so stock up for next year while supplies last.
The SparkFun Inventor's Kit is a great way to get started with programming and hardware interaction with the Arduino programming language.
The SIK is organized around five projects that progress in difficulty, building on the skills learned in each of 16 circuits. Create games, robots, alarms, sensors and more while learning basic concepts of electricity and programming.
The spiral-bound SIK guidebook is your manual to learn electronics. Each circuit is easy to follow complete with detailed instruction and imagery. The guidebook also dives deeper into concepts and provides coding challenges along the way.
This latest version of the SIK (4.1) includes the Redboard Qwiic which allows you to expand into the SparkFun Qwiic ecosystem (I2C sensors, actuators, shields and cables) after you have become proficient with the SIK circuits in the guidebook.
Aside from the 5 projects and 16 circuits included in the guidebook, we have a series of videos walking through these projects along with some bonus projects.
That is so awesome to hear! That's what was hoped for, use in the inspiration in electronics, in all the iterations of the SIK over the years.
My parents kindly purchased me one of these when I was in seventh grade, and now I have a degree in computer engineering and work in the industry. Still have it in a parts drawer. Much love for the SIK.
