Sylvia's Super Awesome Kit

This is Sylvia’s Super Awesome Kit, a companion kit for Sylvia’s Super-Awesome Project Book: Super Simple Arduino! With this kit you will be able to follow along with the book and create three great projects to get started on an Arduino adventure! A lot of work has gone into the Super-Awesome Project Book, and we wanted to make it as easy as possible to get the three projects in this book started.

The book, written by Super-Awesome Sylvia, star of Super-Awesome Sylvia’s Super-Awesome Maker Show is specifically designed at getting kids interested and involved in the world of Arduino at an early age. The kit includes all the parts needed to complete the following experiments in the book:

  • Project One - Simple Strobe - A controllable strobe that lets you stop time
  • Project Two - R.I.F.F. - A “Randomly Influenced Finger Flute”
  • Project Three - TheTapper - A speaker can play music of course, but it can be an input device too

We really love this book and hope that this kit gives anyone interested in learning about Arduino that extra incentive. As Sylvia says, “Get out there and make something!”

Note: A portion of this sale is given back to Sylvia “Super-Awesome” Todd for continued development and education funding.

Sylvia's Super Awesome Kit Product Help and Resources

Core Skill: Programming

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.

2 Programming

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.

Core Skill: Electrical Prototyping

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.

2 Electrical Prototyping

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.

Sylvia's Super Awesome Kit

I ordered this mostly for the components - the LEDs and the cables - and who doesn’t need an extra Arduino! It’s a great price for beginner and advanced enthusiasts alike.
