Sensors, Motors, and More – Version 2


Sensors, Motors, and More is designed to work with Arduino microntrollers and Raspberry Pi computers*, this kit provides the supplies needed to begin your hardware programming journey. This kit provides five different sensors, three different motors, and much more.

Supercharged Science students: Version 2 of this kit provides the parts needed for the 2024-2025 course, “Coding MicroPython with Brian”. This course also requires a Raspberry Pi Pico RP2040, which you can add to your order.

We are currently accepting “Pre-Orders” of this kit for the 2024 – 2025 school year. The first batch of kits are expected to ship July 15th.

The deadline to order this kit in time for the September “Getting Organized” class is August 3rd.

If you need to receive this kit for use over the summer of 2024, please Contact Us.


When you add a Raspberry Pi Pico RP2040 to your order, you’ll receive:

  • Raspberry Pi Pico RP2040 with soldered headers (Pico H), configured for MicroPython
  • Raspberry Pi Pico breakout board and feet designed by Brian Cox
  • 2 meter USB 2.0 cable (USB A male to B micro male)

Recommended Storage Container:

To help arrange all of your parts, we recommend using a STOREHOUSE 10 Tray Utility Boxes from Harbor Freight (Item#4058).

These indispensable trays contain dividers to keep parts separate from each other.

Save time by adding a box to your kit order. When you order the boxes from us, we’ll include a printed set of ready-to-cut labels showing specific spots for every part.

Alternatively, you can buy the boxes directly from Harbor freight and either print your own set of labels or purchase a label packet from us.

About the parts in your kit:

Each component value comes in a separate labeled bag for easy reference.
Be sure to double check all parts using the printable list on the right as soon as you receive your kit.
