This is the ultimate Arduino Uno Starter kit by Vilros ®. It has enough components to get you started making your own Arduino Projects.
This kit includes a 72 page full color Instruction Manual giving you a full introduction to Arduino programming as well as step by step tutorials on how to use each component in this kit.
This Kit is recommended for the beginner interested in leaning the basics of Arduino programming as well as the expert in Programming. The kits has a value of $100 in components, that's over 40% in savings!.
Once you've gone through the instruction guide and mastered the basics of each component go ahead and make your own project combing one or many components.
With this kit you will learn what Arduino is all about and how it is used.
You will learn the basics of Electrical Circuits.The manual will also explain what a bread boards is and how its used.
Arduino is based on C/C++ programming language so we will walk you through the basics to get you started.

I can not comprehend where I might have been able to go had I had a kit such as this Arduino USK when I was a kid. I purchased the kit to use in Amateur Radio applications but who knows where this all may lead.
Thanks for the opportunity to keep busy in my retirement, I think that this kit should be used in schools to not only teach basic electronics but also reading, math and most importantly, how to follow instructions.
Buy a kit and give it to a 12 year old.
The Uno looks to be genuine, although it's fairly tough to tell these days, and Vilros is not an official distributor listed on the Ardiono site. It does behave as an Uno and sketches behave normally upon it. The breadboard in the kit is standard fare, but on the cheaper side. Components are all as expected (tough to screw up LED's and hook-up wire!). The "72 page guide" has 12 project in it which are well documented, but no code in the book, so the zip file with the project code needs to be downloaded adding extra steps to getting started. It's also worth noting that some of the projects just won't work as they're laid out in the book when powering (and programming) the Uno by USB; any of the projects that involve the servo or motor draw more power than is supplied to the Uno's 5v rail, and while it doesn't damage anything, nothing happens either. You're left scratching your head as to why the project isn't working. Plug a 9v battery into the supplied barrel plug pigtail, and things start working okay, but the Uno needed to be completely shut down in between sketch uploads, otherwise the IDE throws errors. Again, all technically "works", but not as simply as described in the "guide".
NOTE: This kit is marked up about ten bills for the additional LCD included over then next kit down sold by Vilros. The LCD is sold on Amazon for about ten bucks (much cheaper elsewhere), but isn't the nicest thing to work with, as it takes a bunch of pins to work. There included book doesn't include an example for the LCD, but rather instruct you to go to their website, create an account, and view an example. Their example is a copy/paste of someone elses work, and is poorly documented. These types of LCD's are readily available, and are often used in products, but it might be wise to spend just a few more dollars and get an I2c or other SPI compatible LCD for tinkering, as it'll only use a few pins and are often even easier to code.
All in all, not a "bad" kit, and the guide will give some good ideas starting out, but it's spendy, and the upcharge for the LCD isn't really worth it.
* A formal circuit diagram
* List of parts used
* 3D and 2D diagrams, showing the finished breadboard / Arduino
* Table of component used (e.g., a 330 ohm resistor), and which breadboard positions to use.
* Short discussion of C code used in the IDE
* Expected results
* Short troubleshooting section
* Very brief example of a real-world application
In the booklet, what we don't see much of:
* Thorough teaching of electronics, troubleshooting, etc.
* Instruction on the meaning of the circuit diagram.
* Instruction in WHY those components are used. Why is a resistor needed? Why is it a 10K ohm, and not a 330 ohm? When do you need a transistor or capacitor (the kit includes no capacitors). Note: there is some discussion of pull-up resistors.
* A diagram showing how the current flows through the breadboard (be sure to read the section "How's it all connected" on the page titled Breadboard -- and WHY aren't there any page numbers???)
The result is that if you make a mistake in a circuit, you may have difficulty correcting it. If you want to create a new circuit of your own, you probably won't have the knowledge to do that.
To be fair, there is some teaching in the *.ino code provided for each circuit. It's not all in the booklet. So, you definitely want to read the C code and comments. There are no quizzes, nor code to complete, or anything like that. It's all basically done for you. There could be far better explanation of what resistors, transistors, capacitors, diodes, etc. do. If you somehow learn to create your own circuits, it's going to be on you, or YouTube, or somewhere else.
It includes a Made in USA, Arduino (genuine, not clone, derivative or, I think, counterfeit), which helps support the Arduino community.
It does include a parts list of the entire kit, near the start of the booklet, so ignore the reviewer who said there isn't.
Some sensors that would have been cool to include, but weren't:
* Air quality
You can, of course, purchase these cheaply elsewhere, and use with this kit.
The English is good throughout.
The 12 circuits are:
1. Blinking an LED, similar to Blinky.
2. Potentiometer (using a dial to vary LED brightness)
3. RGB LED
4. Multiple LEDs
5. Push buttons
6. Photo resistor (like to control a night light that gets brighter when it gets dark)
7. Temperature sensor (it's not a very accurate sensor)
8. Single Servo (that you would use to grasp things in robot hands, for example)
10. Spinning a Motor ** Note: I got a bad motor, apparently. My circuit perfectly matches the book. I tried other parts (diode, 330 ohm resistor, transistor, even wires). The code uploads. I entered various motor speeds in the Serial Monitor, which the booklet never mentions is needed. All the motor does is a high-pitched hum. **
11. Relays (to turn things off and on)
12. Shift register
