Woo! Arduino Budget Pack – the under $50 Arduino pack! – An optimized collection of parts and pieces to experiment with an Arduino at home, school or work. Great for students and those that want to get their feet wet, no soldering required!
This pack has only the basics to get you started. That allows us to keep the price low while giving you the choice of what
shields, sensors and accessories to add in.
Once you have the pack, check out our
free online Arduino tutorials…they’re designed for everyone, even non-programmers!
Arduino Duemilanove w/Atmega328 – The latest and greatest Arduino revision, assembled and ready to go, including 4 rubber feet to protect the board from the worktable
3′ USB cable – Perfect for connecting your Arduino to a computer
Half-sized Breadboard – 400 connection points, plenty of room for beginner projects, with 2 power rails on the side. Can be rubber-banded to an Arduino to make a 1-penny devboard
in 8 colors, perfect for use with the solderless breadboard. 75 flexible breadboard wires
1K & 10K potentiometer – these pots have 0.1″ spacing and fit very nicely into a breadboard without modification
2 small pushbuttons – Snap into the breadboard for button inputs
5 bright red diffused LEDs (250mcd) – indicators, blinkies, bright enough to see in the day, but diffused so that they are visible from all angles.
Can be used on their own, or color-mixed to make nearly any color in the rainbow!
Red, green and blue ultra-bright LED –
5 100 ohm resistors – They can be used to protect pin outputs when starting out
5 1K resistors – Good for use as LED limiting resistors
5 10K resistors – Great for pullups & pulldowns
– A light sensor! CdS photocell Get one in the store today!
Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the
drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
