A fun and easy to use kit that grows with the confidence of the user, this setup is designed to follow the official Pico book, and it does this pretty well with only the LCD display chapter proving troublesome.
A great electronics kit is the spark that ignites a fire in a learner. Our first electronics kit was from Radio Shack and it involved connecting components using springs and wires. Fast forward to the Arduino era and we returned to electronics with an Arduino Uno but it didn’t quite “click”, it took the Raspberry Pi, released in 2012 to unlock our desire to learn.
The Uctronics Raspberry Pi Pico Starter Kit, priced at $43, is designed with the official “Get Started with MicroPython on Raspberry Pi Pico” guide in mind and aims to inspire a new generation of coders and electronics engineers thanks to its comprehensive selection of parts and pre-soldered Pico board. . We put the kit through its paces and learned what it can do well and also where it can do better.
