The bundle has everything a beginner needs to get started and create some seriously impressive projects.

There's no soldering or electronics background required, and it's the perfect introduction to using Arduino to control lights, buzzers, and more.
You'll also get three courses totaling over 25 hours of training-the 'Your Guide to the Internet of Things' course, the 'Make a Remote-Controlled Car' course, and the 'Make Your Own Environment Monitor System' course. You learn the basics of programming for microcontrollers and get an introduction to the different types of sensors before using your kit and the course material to build a remote-control car as well as an environment monitoring system that can measure and log conditions like temperature and humidity. You'll have lifetime access to these courses, so you can work at your own pace and refer back to them whenever you need.
