Arduino is an open source software and electronics platform that has evolved the open hardware, DIY (do it yourself), makers, STEM, and the electronics industry. Arduino has grown to be one of the best learning platforms for young engineers and students. Using an Arduino a student new to electronics and embedded systems can easily build something interesting in less than 2 hours.
Despite the awesomeness and usefulness of the Arduino platform, it also comes with some challenges. Arduino has several add-ons like sensors, modules, shields, displays, and others that can be added to a project to increase its complexity and there are several add-ons that are available in the market from different makers. It can be overwhelming for beginners to get started with so many options. What if we could house all the necessary components in one box? Here, comes the Arduino kits. There are many Arduino starter kits available on the market and most of these kits are intended for electronics enthusiasts who just beginning their journey to Arduino. But how to choose the one that is right for you? Here we will take a look on Elegoo Arduino Starter Kit.
Arduino kits contain an Arduino Uno board or similar board and some other parts that can be used to teach electronics and programming in its simplest form to kids, students, makers, and others. At the same time, professionals can use Arduino for research purposes as the kits have been made to suit everyone. With these kits, one can build projects like smart homes, robots, weather station, fancy light controllers, Alexa clone and many more.
The Elegoo EL-KIT-001 is one of such Arduino kits that goes a step above of other available kits. This is because each component of the kit is clearly labeled, it includes a CD with various Arduino tutorials and includes more than 200 electronics components to build your own project. Elegoo Kit is made from a technology company based in Shenzhen China which I that’s justify its low cost and availability. Elegoo, also creates and sells various types of Arduino kits and pieces.
As said, Elegoo-El-KIT-001 UNO R3 is an Arduino starter kit that has over 200 components to cover most of your starter needs. The kit is compatible with most Arduino modules and Elegoo believes it is the most complete starter kit (I think it might be) out there. True to its’ name, the Elegoo starter kits come with a PDF that contains more than 30 tutorials on projects that deal with the use of every single material found in the kit.
