This starter kit serves as a hands-on introduction to the basics of the Arduino system. Using the accompanying 170-page project book and the comprehensive kit contents, you will learn to build useful, creative projects. Beginning with the basics of electronics and progressing to more complex projects, the kit will enable control of the physical world through sensors and actuators.
