This starter kit for The Vanguard Rainbow project includes the board, a neopixel strip and all necessary cables to power and program the board and Neopixels over USB or Wifi. It’s all the hardware a learner or educator needs to get started with our simple programming examples after connecting to their Vanguard board. Vanguard Rainbow is the first kit in the Vanguard Series (sold to support development of resources on this site).
Battery packs are offered as an optional extra. If you don’t need a MicroB USB cable or the Neopixels, (you have your own hardware) buy just the Vanguard board for £6.50. For more detail on the project, visit the project page
