Monk Makes is a totally simple electronic starter kit that clearly illustrates a series of progressive tech projects. The Kit contains all the components you need, together with easy-to-follow instruction cards, in order for curious kids to complete 10 simple experiments involving LEDs, thermistors, photoresistors and switches. Monk Makes is an ideal starting point for anyone new to electronics and the Raspberry Pi as the simplicity is simply unmatched. Not only are the projects totally cool, but they’re genuinely useful, too - start by making a simple LED blink and tinker your way all the way up to creating a real-time email notification system!

Each jumper wire has a specific function and is able to execute that function when the male side is properly connected to the breadboard and the female side properly connected to the Raspberry Pi (good news, it works with the new Raspberry Pi 3). The colors are nice, but it doesn’t matter which wire you use when setting up your project - any one will do when connecting components to the breadboard. For a better user experience, the kit contains a tiny leaflet that can be placed directly over the GPIO pins for easy identification. Don’t forget to make sure that the resistor leads are not touching and once you’ve built your circuit, you’re ready to run the program on your desktop or laptop. The project cards feature the required code and - just like that - you’re ready to start programming!
