Hi,

I'm an university student of 20 year-old, in electrical engineering. I'm actually looking for an electronics aud\or robotics kit to challenge my academic knowledge. I know nothing on programming language and a bit on electronics components. So, which product can you suggest me to buy on Sparkfun online shop?

Thanks

Since none of us know your interests, look at the kits available and pick one that tickles your fancy.

For someone with your background, I would recommend the SparkFun Inventor's Kit

https://www.sparkfun.com/products/11227

It's got lots of different parts, so probably some you're familiar with and some you're not. On the programming side, it comes with a project booklet that will teach you the basics of coding to go along with the various circuits. Generally, it'll probably cover many of your current interests, and introduce you to some new ones.

Hey thanks for the suggestion. I was looking forward to buy some good kit and I think this is perfect for the beginners.

The Inventor's Kit is a great starting point for beginners. Another great resource to go with that is the Arduino Cook Book (https://www.sparkfun.com/products/11170), which has a lot of great example code and will help you continue to develop your coding skills with Arduino after you've worked through the introductory circuits inside the Inventor's Kit.

If you are interested in e-textiles at all, a good starting point would be the Protosnap-Lilypad Development Kit: https://www.sparkfun.com/products/11262. It doesn't come with example code, but you can find a lot of great examples on the product page, in the forums, and on the Arduino.cc site.
