what is it?: the start arduino kit is a box of goodies to get the very beginner started with programmable electronics. it includes all the bits you need to build basic circuits, no soldering required! how does it work?: the components and guides will take you through a step by step process to make things with electronics. these include: blinking leds, controlling a toy motor, controlling a servo, making music, responding to buttons, using a variable resistor to control volume, detaching ambient light, reading temperature, controlling big devices and mixing led colours.
