The SparkFun LED Project Kit is a great way to get started with programming and hardware interaction with the Arduino programming language. Each SparkFun LED Project Kit includes everything you need to complete seven projects that will teach you how to blink an LED, create a night-light, make a Simon Says game, and more. You don't need any previous programming or electronics experience to use this kit.
The online Projects Guide (in the Documents tab above) contains step-by-step instructions of how to connect each circuit with the included parts. Full example code is provided and explained, and even includes troubleshooting tips in case something goes wrong.
The kit does not require any soldering and is recommended for beginners ages 10 and up. This kit will help prove that anyone can (and should) play around with cutting-edge electronics in a fun and playful way while not breaking the bank.
The SparkFun LED Project Kit uses the same project tutorial as the SparkFun Tinker Kit. What is included in this kit covers projects one through seven. If after you have completed those projects and would like to continue on to the other projects listed, we have the necessary products for those listed below. The SparkFun LED Project Kit is a scaled back version of the SparkFun Tinker Kit just without the motor driving and temperature sensing.
If a board needs code or communicates somehow, you're going to need to know how to program or interface with it. The programming skill is all about communication and code.
Skill Level: Rookie - You will need a better fundamental understand of what code is, and how it works. You will be using beginner-level software and development tools like Arduino. You will be dealing directly with code, but numerous examples and libraries are available. Sensors or shields will communicate with serial or TTL.

If it requires power, you need to know how much, what all the pins do, and how to hook it up. You may need to reference datasheets, schematics, and know the ins and outs of electronics.
Skill Level: Rookie - You may be required to know a bit more about the component, such as orientation, or how to hook it up, in addition to power requirements. You will need to understand polarized components.
