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.
The SIK v4 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.
Basic electronics concepts, included components and Arduino code are introduced at point of use in the context of each project in the SIK v4.

Push yourself to the next level by modifying your code or changing your circuit. These challenges let you extend your learning and try your own ideas.
Over the years we've taken user feedback to heart to make the best possible embedded electronics kit.
The SIK has breadboard-friendly components to make circuit building even easier for those just getting started. The resistors have thicker leads making them more durable. Also, the buttons have straight legs to easily fit into your breadboard.
The SIK comes in a universal hard case that will provide users with a great place to store electronics when they’re not in use. The case can also be used as an enclosure for most any project you can think up.
The spiral-bound SIK guide is your manual to learn electronics. Each circuit is easy to follow and build, allowing you to concentrate on learning, not reading complicated instructions. To add more depth to the SIK and the concepts it teaches, the capstone project covers robotics concepts that will allow beginners to create their own autonomous robot!
The lastest version of the SIK (4.1) includes the Redboard Qwiic which allows you to expand into the SparkFun Qwiic ecosystem after you have become proficient with the SIK circuits. The SparkFun Qwiic Connect System is an ecosystem of I2C sensors, actuators, shields and cables that make prototyping faster and less prone to error.
