Arduino component 5: Metal film resistor 1/4W assortment kit

Arduino component 5: Metal film resistor 1/4W assortment kit

Resistors are used everywhere in schematics. Since I did not know in advance which values I would need, I ordered a pack with 50 different values. The result was 1000 unlabeled resistors in the mailbox, packed per 20. Now I know why I bought a multimeter.

Arduino component 4: 840 Pin Breadboard + Jumper Wire Kit

Arduino component 4: 840 Pin Breadboard + Jumper Wire Kit

So I do have LEDs, potentiometer, Arduino shield, but I also need wires and a breadboard. Luckily I already had an old breadboard. But today a new one arrived with jumper wires included.

Component description
What? 840 Pin Breadboard + Jumper Wire Kit
Why? Without a breadboard and wires we can not build any experiment at all.
