• Programme your tune using a PICAXE chip
• Simple and fun to solder with 12 parts
• Required three AA batteries (Order Code L43AL)

What can this kit do?
Create a music box or musical money box with this musical solder kit (manufactures code MAP-2122). You can create a circuit that plays as a music box lid open or when a coin passes through a gap. The kit powers off three AA batteries (not included) and comes with a battery box for them. With 12 parts this is a simple and fun way to get into electronics and programming. Once you’ve put the kit together you can build your box or any other container around it.

What can I learn from this music kit?
Practise soldering and learn about electronics and circuits with this music kit. It uses resistors, a switch, a buzzer and a microchip, and will help you learn how to connect a circuit. This kit uses a PICAXE-08M2 chip for you to programme your music to. The buzzer relies on electronic signal to determine its tone, the chip varies the signal to produce your tune. This kit requires a soldering iron and solder, and may require wire cutters.

How easy is the programming?
The PICAXE chip can be programmed using the PICAXE flowchart software (www.picaxe.com) and requires a PICAXE programming lead which can be plugged into the board. Open up new possibilities with a combination of electronic kits and programming and see just what you can do.
