SparkFun Inventor's Kit - Example Sketches

SparkFun Inventor's Kit
SparkFun Inventor's Kit (KIT-12060)

The example sketches in this repository are part of the SparkFun Inventor's Kit (a.k.a. "The SIK"). The SIK consists of an Arduino microcontroller and a variety of electronic components designed to help you learn basic programming and circuits. Once you've mastered these circuits, you'll be able to start building projects limited only by your imagination!

These sketches are designed to work with the SIK Experiment Guide tutorial.

Getting Started

  1. If you haven't yet, download and install the Arduino IDE
  2. Obtain the latest SIK Guide Code by one of the following methods:
  3. Place the SIK-Guide-Code folder in the Arduino IDE examples directory:
    • PC: drag the SIK-Guide-Code folder into C:\program files\Arduino-x\examples
    • MAC: Right-click on the Arduino IDE app and click "Show Package Contents...". Drag the SIK-Guide-Code folder into Contents/Resources/Java
    • Linux: see
  4. Start the Arduino IDE; the examples should be visible in this menu: File > Examples > SIK Guide Code
