The SparkFun Inventor's Kit (SIK) is a great way to get started with programming and hardware interaction with the Arduino programming language. The SIK includes everything you need to complete 16 circuits that will teach you how to read sensors, display information on an LCD, drive motors, and more. You don't need any previous programming or electronics experience to use this kit. The kit does not require any soldering and is recommended for beginners ages 10 and up.
The full-color SIK Guidebook (included) 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 if something goes wrong.

Would be nice to have included an organizational container. To keep from parts getting 'lost' from middle school kids, all kits targeted to schools should automatically come with sturdy, organizational containers.
I’ve had a great time learning! It makes sure you understand each phase before moving on to the next. This is a better learning experience than a lot of college classes I’ve taken! To bad we can’t get credit for it ;)
Thanks for being such a great company!!!
