The SparkFun Inventor’s Kit (SIK) is a great way to get started with programming and hardware interaction with the 
Arduino programming language. The SIK includes everything you need to complete 16 circuits that will teach you how to read sensors,  display information on an LCD, drive motors, and more. You don’t need any previous programming or electronics experience to use this kit.
