im having trouble locating which pins to connect the SCL and SDA to from the arduino to the LCD Shield kit
Since you are using it plugged into the Arduino, all the connections are made for you.
Binary sketch size: 7294 bytes (of a 32256 byte maximum)
avrdude: stk500_getsync(): not in sync: resp=0x30
in the error box with nothing on the LCD
That indicates a communication problem between your computer and your Arduino.
Remove the shield (just to make sure it is not causing any problems)
Open "Tools->Board" and make sure you have the correct board type selected.
Open "Tools->Serial Port" and make sure you have the correct serial port selected.
Then try the upload again
