Construct circuits with colourful electric building blocks to learn about electricity and how electronic devices work. With the innovative snap-together blocks in the ElectronX building system, children eight and up can safely and easily begin experimenting with electronic circuits.
These building blocks are specially designed to make learning electronics fun and accessible. Because the blocks are brightly coloured and have unique shapes, it is easy to follow the assembly diagrams to construct functional circuits. And because 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 building projects include an alternating blinker, a police siren, an ambulance siren, an alarm system, a light detector, a conductivity tester, a rain warning system, a timer, and logic circuits.
The electronic components in this kit include capacitors, resistors, transistors, LEDs (light emitting diodes), a phototransistor, a switch, 30 contact blocks, cable blocks, a battery holder, a speaker, and a sound integrated circuit. The 64-page, full-colour experiment manual guides you through 70 circuit building experiments with easy-to-follow diagrams.
This kit provides kids with the tools and instructions they need to experiment with their own hands and learn first hand how electronics work.
