Experimentation Kits for #backtoschool

One of our favorite things to sell here at Adafruit are experimentation/beginners kits.  We know that with every one of these kits that we sell, we are introducing someone to a new hobby or skill.  Thankfully, Adafruit stocks a huge variety of experimentation kits for all age levels.  Here are our favorites:

The Adafruit ARDX – v1.3 Experimentation Kit for Arduino.  This is by far the best way to get your feet wet with Arduino.

We also offer a great starter pack for the Arduino.  Find some great tutorials on getting started with Arduino on the Adafruit Learning System.  Once you have completed the online tutorials you will have some great gear to get you started on your first project.  We also have a budget Arduino pack.

If you are looking to get into robotics, or teach a robotics class, look no further than the Parallax BOEBot.  This robot is built like a tank, and has a ton of functionality to get you or your students hooked on robotics.  The best part of the whole system is Parallax’s amazing online guide for the BOEBot.  Because of the built-in breadboard, once you have completed the tutorials, you can modify the bot to do what you want.

You want to get hacking with your Pi fast, right? Get everything you need to start with the Adafruit Starter Pack for Raspberry Pi. It’s the perfect accompaniment to your new Pi, everything you need to get a distro image loaded and running.

If you’ve heard about the Beagle Bone Black and you want to hit the ground running, this starter pack is for you. We’ve picked out everything you need to start out, with essential parts and accessories to save on a bundle.

mbed is another really powerful microcontroller that is also super easy to use thanks to the mbed online IDE.  We have this neat mbed RFID/NFC starter kit that will not only introduce you to the mbed, but also teach you how to incorporate RFID/NFC into your projects.

If you want to teach someone of any age (and we mean any age) about electronics, be sure to check out littleBits.  This neat kit has a bunch of electronics components that snap together with magnets to create custom circuits.  There is no wrong way to hook up your littleBits, and they have a lot of great project examples online to give you some inspiration.
