Thanks for the story!

One thing I would point out is that it might be more cost effective and easier to purchase one of the many kits available on Amazon that contain lots of different components and sensors along with an Arduino compatible controller board. This is what I did when I first started working with the Arduino, and it was really nice to have a bunch of different parts to experiment with!

I now have several boxes of various types of parts and lots of different types of micro-controller boards. My favorite is the Nano compatible boards because they are very small and inexpensive and easy to incorporate into my final projects.
