Electronics, as many of our avid customers will understand, can be a truly exciting hobby to enjoy on the weekends and in your spare time, but starting from scratch can be a daunting thought, as there are thousands upon thousands of different Electronics Components, modules, microcontrollers like Arduino and more, which each have their own unique function, electrical specifics and many other factors that are genuinely confusing for a newbie.

This is why we’re really excited about this Arduino Zero to Hero Learning Kit from DFRobot! This kit is ideal for Electronics enthusiasts of all levels, with a particular focus on beginners who don’t know where to start. The kit offers a total of 37 different online courses, accompanied by helpful videos and guides, which range from basic circuitry design and foundational knowledge, all the way through to very advanced robotics projects like building your own quadcopter.

With the Arduino Zero to Hero Learning Kit, regardless of what your skill level is, you’ll be able to pick from a wide range of tutorials of varying difficulty, and immediately start learning, practicing and enjoying a vast number of different projects – perhaps even venturing outside of the courses and experimenting with your own custom projects once you have a good understanding.

Finally, one of the best aspects about these Electronics Kits is that these kits include a full complement of components and modules, which means you don’t even have to follow the online courses if you don’t want to. And if your skills are already at a decent level, you can simply acquire this kit for the high quality parts and the neat, convenient carry-case. So, whether you are brand new to Electronics Modules, components and experimentation, or are already well-established in your field of electronics expertise, you can certainly find many ways to put this excellent kit to good use.

Please Note: Each of these fantastic kits will contain a code that will unlock free access to tutorials 22 to 37, and you can input your code at However, if you’re eager for a taste of what’s to come before you buy the kit, the first 21 tutorials are freely available on YouTube, with the links included down below.

What You can Expect to Learn with the Arduino Zero to Hero Learning Kit:

The Arduino Zero to Hero Learning Kit was designed by an avid electronics enthusiast by name of Sanjin Dedić, who spent five years creating projects and developing his very own guides, which ultimately led to him building an entire online course. This course turned out to be so great that DFRobot took notice and formed somewhat of a partnership with him, to create a kit that accompanies his course, helping students, kids and even professionals working in the field to better their skills and learn more about their favourite hobby or career.


This course is split into 37 distinct tutorials and guides, and they include the following:


1.  LED Button Circuit

2.  Potentiometer LED Control

3.  Transistor-Controlled LED Circuit

4.  Darlington Pair Current Amplifier

5.  Glow in the Dark Circuit

6.  And Logic Gate

7.  Or Logic Gate

8.  NOT Logic Gate


9.  LED Blink Rate Investigation

10.  Using Random To Select LED’s Control Delays

11.  Programming Input / Output with Push Buttons


12.  Analog Input Demonstrations with Voltage Dividers

13.  Photodiodes and LDR in Voltage Divider Light Sensing Circuits

14.  Arduino Light Theremin

15.  LM35 Temperature Sensor with Graph Plotting

16.  Maxwell Colour Wheel with RGB LED

17.  RGB LED Colour Mixer with 3 Potentiometers

18.  Microphone Clap Switch

19.  Microphone Calibrated Double Clap Switch

20.  Sound / Music Reacting Circuit

21.  Button Controlled Frequency Generator

22.  Piano Circuit with 4 Tones

23.  Sound Effects Generator (Fibonacci, Space Guns etc…)

24.  Temperature Plotting Program

25.  7 Segment Display Circuit

26.  7 Segment Guess The Number Game

27.  Reaction Time Measuring Circuit (using LED and Sound Triggers)


28.  Creating Arrays to Store Reaction Time Results

29.  Saving Reaction Time Results to SD Card

30.  Plotting the SD Card Results in Excel

31.  Memory Training Game

32.  Infrared Remote Control Circuit

33.  Infrared Remote Controlling a Speaker and LED Panel

34.  Reading Accelerometer and Gyroscope Values

35.  Connecting Arduino to Processing

36.  Control LED’s via Computer Mouse (using Processing)

37.  Visualising Gyroscope and Accelerometer Values (using Processing)



Not exactly as marketed

One of the main reasons for purchase was the course that comes with the kit.

I'm 37% complete and so far two of the builds/exercises I could not do because the course uses components not included in the kit. (2x transistors and RGB LED)

What is also annoying is that the breadboard + Aruino mounting board is not that same as the course. Its actually completely the opposite side which in turn makes it hard to follow if you are a noob like me.
