This resource consists of a selection of links to the additional Inventors Kit resources that we have created to accompany each of the experiments. Each experiment has a walk-through video that also contains hints and tips designed to help you complete the experiment and to understand how the circuits work. We have also included links to additional code examples, such as Python code for all 12 experiments.

Hi, I've just downloaded a couple at random and they were the right code. Do you have a specific example?
