    there are a myriad of kits to look at, and online guides. it really depends on what you want to do.
    robotics is pretty simple its when you want sensors that they become harder. just remember there are typically 2 types of moving electronic devices the Motor (moves in circles and the specialised motor, called a servo, can give very accurate movement) and the solenoid. the solenoid is rarely used as it either relaxes totally or contracts totally and there is no in between (unless you use springs etc) design something that you think could be fun to play with. try not to worry too much about mistakes, and use easy to buy (and very cheap) items. if you get any pics of your project that would be awesome to see, even sketches.
