Learn the fundamentals of Python coding quickly and easily – no previous programming experience required. This kit contains various electronics that show you what is really possible to do with coding in a hands-on and engaging way! Once you have received your essentials kit, you can follow our online interactive tutorials here.

After completing the Essentials Kit, you will be fluent in Python and will have the foundations that are needed to build Websites, Apps, Games, and to complete projects in the hot fields of Data Science, Artificial Intelligence, and Robotics.

Real-world projects that you will complete with the essentials kit:

  • Write a program to create a Christmas light that turns on and off forever.
  • Write a program and build a circuit to turn on an LED with a button press.
  • Count the number of times your friend says the word “UMM” in a speech.
  • Use a weather API to find the live temperature and precipitation in San Diego.


Our tutorials have an extensive focus on real-world applications. We show you what is actually possible to do with programming within the first couple of lines of code that you write! The specific fundamental Python concepts that you will be learning in the Essentials Kit are data types, variables, operators, conditionals, lists, functions, logic, libraries, iteration, and dictionaries.

    We completed the kit last weekend. Took about a week to follow all of the tutorials. The API chapter was our favorite.

    Son has never been interested in coding before. Picked up this kit last week and he can’t put it down.

    So worth it! After watching my son go through the tutorials, I decided to steal the kit from him and learn a bit of Python myself!! Tutorials are much easier to understand than others I’ve tried online (Codecademy). The hands-on projects make a big difference.

    We’ve tried other platforms to get our son interested in coding, but this kit is by far the most effective.

    We recently enrolled our daughter in some coding classes and she struggled to stay motivated because the coding concepts introduced were too abstract. We got this kit hoping that the hands-on aspect would help make things more concrete. She absolutely loves it! The projects are super cool and all the key concepts are reinforced with hands-on projects.

    My son, 12 years old, has done a bit of scratch programming but never made the leap to Python programming. We decided to get this kit because of the project-based approach to learning Python, and it’s been incredible. The course tutorials are so well explained and interactive, he’s had no problem following them. Would recommend to anyone who wants to learn Python.
