Arduino Budget Pack – Under $50 Arduino pack!
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

Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s
CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.
