An overview of what you will receive
This starterkit contains 23 components. Below you can find which components you get and what you can do with them.
Together with all the components you get a book explaining you how to use the components and how to code for the Arduino. In this book are also 10 projects to introduce you to the wonderful world of electronics and Arduino.
The Arduino is the brain of your circuit. It handles all the sensors and actuators that you connect to it with the code that you will write. The Arduino that you get in the kit is not an original Arduino, but an exact clone. This saves you money on your first kit. Arduino is an 'open source' platform which means that other companies than Arduino itself are allowed to produce and sell Arduinos.
The breadboard is your connection board. If you want to connect two or more wires together, you plug them in the holes of the breadboard. This is way more convenient than having to solder everytime you want to connect wires together. How to use the breadboard is explained in the project book.
Jumper cables fit easily in the Arduino, the breadboard and all the sensor and actuators. Because of these jumper cables you can easily connect everything together.
A LED ring has 16 seperate LEDs that you can control independently and make any color you want to. In the kit, the connection wires are already soldered on the LED-ring for you.
This LCD display is the easiest type of display to show text and numbers. With this display you only have to connect 4 wires and you can show something on the display with only one line of code.
With this relay you can turn on and off other devices that normally work on mains voltage.
Read the position of the joystick with the Arduino to make things happen if you move the joystick.
Use the infrared remote to communicate with the Arduino over a distance.
Use the infrared receiver to receive signals from the infrared remote.
Use the IR transmitter to control devices with your Arduino that are normally controlled with a remote, like a TV.
A servo motor is a motor of which you can control the position instead of the speed. Ideal if you want to rotate something just the right amount of degrees.
Record sound and determine sound volume with the microphone connected to your Arduino.
A piezo sensor is a small sensor that detects when it is touched or vibrates. You can use it to trigger actions with a single touch.
A potentiometer is a knob that tells the Arduino how much it is rotated. This is used for example for volume control.
A buzzer is the easiest speaker avaialble. It can generate one tone at the time, but you can still use it to play a fun melody.
You get 3 buttons that you can use to control things by pressing a button.
An RGB LED is a LED that can become any color.
Next to the RGB LED you also get LEDS that can only light up in 1 color. You get an LED of 5 different colors.
A transistor is used to work with higher currents and voltages than the Arduino can normally handle. This is necessary for high power devices like motors and LED-strips.
Resistors are the most commonly used component in electronics. You'll get a couple of resistors in the most used values. You need this to get some of the other components to work.
An NTC is used to measure temperature. With this NTC you can make things happen at certain temperatures.
An LDR is used to measure light. You can use it to for example measure when it's dark and turn on a light if this is the case.
There are several Arduino starterkits available, each having its own target group and advantages. This kit is ideal for creative (young) adults, who want to make amazing projects with electronics without having to learn all the ins and outs of all the components.
The components in this starterkit are selected such that you can do a lot of amazing projects for a small price. For reference, seperately, the Arduino alone already costs 28 euros, without any components.
In the projects of this starterkit you can use your imagination to make the end result unique for you. This also prepares you better for using creativity in your future projects.
The project book gives a great explaination on how the components are used and gradually guides you from using the easy components to the more difficult components.
By doing the projects explained in the starterkit you get prepared to use the most common components in electronics and you learn how to solve the problems you may encounter in your future projects.
You can now order the starter kit with a digital copy of the book for only €59.98 (excl. shipping).
