Construct circuits with colorful electric building blocks to learn about electricity and how electronic devices work. With the innovative snap-together blocks in this building system, children eight and up can safely and easily begin experimenting with circuits. These building blocks are specially designed to make learning electronics fun and accessible. Because the blocks are brightly colored and have unique shapes, it is easy to follow the assembly diagrams to construct functional circuits, and since the circuit symbols are printed directly onto the blocks, you can quickly become familiar with the symbols and learn how to read circuit diagrams.
The fun builidng projects include an alternating blinker, a police siren, an ambulance siren, an alarm system, a light detector, a conductivity tester, a rain warning sytem, a timer, and logic circuits. The electronic components in this kit include capacitors, resistors, transistors, LEDs (light-emitting diodes), a photoransistor, a switch, 30 contact blocks, cable blocks, a battery holder, a speaker, and a sound-integrated circuit.
This introductory snap-together circuit kit is perfect for teaching children about electricity and how electronic devices work. The kit allows you to build using easy-to-read circuit diagrams, due to the circuit symbols printed directly onto the blocks. Children are able to conduct 70 different experiments guided by a thorough 64-page manual that focuses on teaching the science behind the activities. Highly recommended for teaching electronics to children in the classroom setting as a science project, or for amusing children at home as a birthday or Christmas gift.
