Tap into the awesome world of electronics with this advanced system of snap-together electric building blocks. Start out by experimenting with colorful light-up circuits as you dive into the basics of electricity. Install a sound module to generate the sounds of police cars, ambulances, or fire engines. Learn the important role resistors and potentiometers (variable resistors) play in an electronic circuit. Use a multimeter to measure invisible voltage and current flowing through your circuit. Learn how ammeters, voltmeters, and batteries work.
Move into the digital world by investigating transistors in switches and amplifiers. Learn how the logical circuits in computers work. Come to your senses with electronic sensors! Build circuits that use sensors to detect moisture, temperature, and visible light. Incorporate capacitors in your circuits to store and discharge electricity for specific functions, such as a countdown clock and a red-green alternate flasher. Use what you have learned to assemble some functional circuits including a countdown clock, a Morse code transmitter, an adjustable sound generator, a metronome, and a light-controlled musical organ. Test out the indispensable 555 timer to build some complicated circuits. Use an operational amplifier and an FM radio module to build an alarm clock radio.
This kit uses the same unique electric building blocks as our other electronics kits, with the addition of many new advanced components, allowing you to build more complex circuits. The more than 140 electronic components include capacitors, resistors, transistors, LEDs (light emitting diodes), phototransistor, switches, speaker, integrated circuit, infrared LED, diodes, FM tuner, 555 timer, operation amplifier, two potentiometers, electrodes, voltage and current meter, microphone, and 9-volt battery pack. The 168-page, full-color experiment manual gives you clear assembly diagrams for each circuit, and describes what happens in each, making electrical engineering seriously fun and seriously educational!
