Learn electronics and coding at home. No experience needed! Save $29 by purchasing these two kits together vs. purchasing separately.


Levels A and B are the first and second levels in the Intro to Robotics program. Intro to Robotics is designed to start at the very beginning and systematically teach you to work with electrical components, use a Raspberry Pi, write code in Python, and combine all those skills to build a fully mobile programmable robot at home. Along the way you will learn to work with a wide variety of electronics, read schematics, troubleshoot, and craft every line of computer code yourself.

 Levels A and B of The Intro to Robotics program starts at the very beginning teaching you how to work with electrical components, build circuits, use a Raspberry Pi, and write code in Python. As the lessons go on you'll learn to use increasingly complex electrical components and advanced code commands.

  • Learn how electricity and electrical equipment work
  • Learn to properly use common electrical components that make up circuits including breadboards, batteries, LEDs, resistors, jumper wires, and switches
  • Build both series and parallel circuits and understand how to use Ohm's Law when designing circuits
  • Practice systematic troubleshooting techniques including half-splitting
  • Learn to read schematic drawings
  • Learn to use a Raspberry Pi (a mini computer) including connecting it to peripherals (keyboard, mouse, etc.) as well as downloading files and software updates
  • Learn to use several included software packages including Raspbian OS, Nano, and Thonny
  • Learn to to create basic Python programs including comments, merging strings, user input, mathematical functions, lists, if/else statements, and loops to control electrical circuits and create games
  • Learn to identify and correct errors in Python computer programs
  • Work administratively with files, folders, and directories
  • Continue to expand coding knowledge to include functions, advanced list commands, logical operators, while true loops, advanced string techniques, try/except/finally, and multithreaded operations
  • Understand pulse width modulation
  • Learn to work with new types of switches, a matrix-style keypad, potentiometers, phototransistors, infrared sensors, RFID readers, temperature sensors, an I2C display, and ultrasonic range sensors
  • Learn to use Github and adjust for various versions of Python.
  • Work with an analog-to-digital converter integrated circuit
  • Continue to improve troubleshooting skills for both electrical circuits and computer programs
  • Continue to gain the skills to independently tackle advanced projects found online

CUSTOMERS TESTIMONIALS

“I am halfway through Level B and am very impressed with the excellent quality of electronics instruction! As a retired IT professional and former Computer Science instructor I feel qualified to also evaluate the programming instruction. It is...excellent as well! Both the electronics and programming instruction are easy to follow for students and adults alike and is well-structured in a "one step builds upon another" approach. Highly recommend!”

By Glen S.

"These are really well crafted lesson plans. They teach in a practical, well thought out manner. My 15 year old son has been working on a lesson a day all summer, and has learned some serious skills. Thank you!"

By Delwyn F.

"As an electronics engineer, I wanted my daughter to have experience with and be comfortable with circuits and eventually make a robot. Like the founders of the company, I tried many different kits on the market and they all lacked the fundamental foundation for understanding. We love the 42Electronics curriculum as it starts from the ground up. Sitting down with the day’s lesson is the highlight of our homeschool day! We can’t wait to get to the more complicated items in the higher levels!"

Easy to Use

So far this program has been great! My son has been able to do it mostly on his own. The text is written clearly with lots of illustrations.
