The SparkFun Inventor's Kit has continued to be one of our most popular products. The SIK (as we call it) is a learning tool designed around the popular Arduino development platform. In the SIK, you go through various educational circuits as you learn all there is to know about the basics of Arduino and beginner embedded electronics.
If you're interested in exploring the SIK, but aren't sure where to start, we have the class for you. On April 21, 2012 from 9 AM to 5 PM we are holding the Introduction to Arduino class. This class is for anyone who has never played around with Arduino before and those who have played around a little bit but aren't entirely sure about how the basics work. You'll put together basic single component electrical circuits, learn about analog and digital, input and output, basic programming concepts, practice very basic Serial communication, and briefly cover basic virtual prototyping.
This class is truly designed with the beginner in mind and serves as a great introduction to the world of physical computing. Sign up today! Hope to see you there!
