9to5Toys Specials is currently offering the Complete Arduino Starter Kit and Course Bundle for $76 with free shipping. It contains all you need to begin making your own inventive projects..

There are literally millions of things you can create with an Arduino, which is why it is a great way into electronics. This bundle actually puts an Arduino (Uno) in your hands, along with an entire kit for making circuits — breadboards, jumper wires, lights, buzzers, and plenty more. You get a good instruction booklet in with this gear, but to help you to move into more advanced Arduino-based projects, this bundle also comes with three courses. In no particular order, these show you how to self-build a RC car and set up various forms of environmental monitoring, while you can also learn about the Internet of Things (smart devices). It is a pretty comprehensive line-up for anyone wanting to get started with Arduino.

  • ARDX Arduino Starter Kit (incl. Arduino Uno + 13 circuits)
  • Arduino Step-by-Step ‘Your Guide to the Internet of Things’ Course
  • Arduino ‘Make a Remote-Controlled Car’ Course
  • Beginning Arduino ‘Make Your Own Environment Monitor System’ Course
