Arduino Step by Step Getting Started
List of parts and tools

The following lists contain the parts and tools necessary to complete the course Arduino Step by Step Getting Started (Kids Learning Space or Bootcamp edition).

Many of the items below are reusable. Items like soldering irons, precision screwdrivers, Arduinos etc will last for many years if you look after them. Other items like resistors, spacers and potentiometers come in packs that contain sufficient numbers to last for many projects.

The items in these lists are provided in an effort to make it easier for our students to find the parts and tools they need. While we take care to find reliable Amazon sellers, we cannot be responsible for problems in their supply chain or fulfillment. Sellers may run out of stock at any time, or shipments may be lost in transit. For issues like these, or for warranty claims, please contact the seller or Amazon directly.

If you do not live in the US, UK or Germany, or the Amazon stores that we provide links to below do not deliver to your location, consider using a freight forwarding service like Shipito. You can ship your shopping to them, and they will forward to you, anywhere in the world. This is useful in case, for at least some of the items in your shopping list, Amazon will not ship to addresses outside the US.

In addition to Amazon, our friends at SunFounder have kindly taken the time to find the course hardware in their inventory and provided direct links to the relevant product pages. SunFounder can ship their products anywhere in the world.

If you are working on the free introductory course for the Arduino, you will need items 1.1, 1.4, 1.9, 1.10, 2.1 and 2.2.
