Freetronics Christmas Gift Guide

With Christmas fast approaching it is time to start thinking about what kind of gifts to get your kids, spouse, parents or friends. Fortunately, electronics is a great hobby for people of all ages. Whether your gift recipient is an electronics expert or has never done any electronics before we have the perfect gift for them. Many of of gifts are Arduino related, if you don’t know what Arduino is it might be worth visiting our “what is Arduino” page.

For the Aspiring Inventor (Age 10-99)

 For someone interested in getting started with programing and electronics, our Experimenter’s Kit is the perfect introduction. The kit includes a wide range of parts including a servo, sensors, lights, buttons, a sound module and more. Importantly, a Freetronics Eleven Arduino-compatible board is included to ensure that the kit contains everything you need to get started with Arduino. All these great parts would be useless without some form of instructions which is why we have developed a comprehensive project and instruction booklet to get you started. Check out the product page to find out more.
