We’re giving away amazing kits from our new Make: Ultimate Kit Guide EVERY DAY — thousands of dollars worth of merchandise, including MakerBots!

To celebrate the release of our latest publication, the Make: Ultimate Kit Guide 2012 (and its companion website), we’re giving away one of the cool kits reviewed in the issue each day during the holiday season.

Today’s item is our extremely popular Getting Started with Arduino Kit V3.0 and the new 2nd edition of the Getting Started with Arduino book (combined $80 value). Here’s Make: Labs intern Tyler Moskowite’s review from the Guide:

The world of Arduino microcontrollers can be a challenge to break into — but not if you’re equipped with this kit, which includes all of the hardware you need to work through each of the experiments in Getting Started with Arduino, the popular introductory book by Arduino project co-founder Massimo Banzi. To make it even easier, all of the components are solder-free, except for the DC plug and battery pack – just plug, play, and learn. Not only does the book go over all of the Arduino’s features, it also gives a good overview of basic electronics. After completing this kit, I found myself ready to take on all sorts of physical computing projects.

To be eligible for today’s giveaway, all you have to do is leave a comment below in this post. The entry period for today’s prize will be until 11:59pm PST tonight. We’ll choose one person at random, you’ll be notified by email, and you’ll have 48 hours to respond. The Winners List is kept on the Giveaway landing page. That’s it! No purchase necessary or anything else to do. Please leave only one comment per post. You can enter as many giveaways as you like until you win. This giveaway is for US residents only. You also must be 18 years old to enter (Kids: Ask your parents to enter). See the Kit-A-Day Giveaway landing page for full sweepstakes details and Official Rules.

Day 1 and 2 Giveaways: The winner of the Day 1 MakerBot giveaway was James Garrett. As you can imagine, he’s very excited. Congrats, James! Winner of Day 2 has been notified. They have 48 hours to respond.
