Whether you do projects with Raspberry Pi or some other board, you're going to need a breadboard. Breadboards allow you to prototype electronics by popping all your wires, sensors, motors, lights, speakers, transistors and resistors into their little plastic holes. You use simple, removable cables called jumper wires to connect your Pi to all of the electronics and build working circuits.
Normally, buying even one breadboard by itself will cost you $7 to $10. But right now, Amazon has this Antrader kit for just $5.13 (after you click the coupon button). It comes with two full-size breadboards, two half-boards and 120 different jumper cables.
Antrader 4-Breadboard Kit: was $11 now $5 @Amazon
Great for Raspberry Pi or Arduino projects, this set includes two full-size and two half-size broadboards, along with 120 jumper wires that come in male-to-male, male-to-female and female-to-female varieties. Every maker needs these.
You get three types of jumper cable: male-to-male, male-to-female and female-to-female. You'll probably use the male-to-female wires to run from the Raspberry Pi's GPIO pins to the breadboard, which has holes in it.
