Product overview

• Learn about electronics and try building electronic circuits
• Experiment with over 36 components including LEDs, motors, 55 timer chips, and resistors
• Have fun and learn with 29 circuits to make
• Requires up to four AA batteries and a 9V battery depending on the circuit (batteries not included Order Codes L43AL and A46AL)

What can I do with this kit?
Learn and experiment with over 36 components and create 29 different circuits. This starter kit caters to all ability levels with detailed instructions and illustrations in the 31-page booklet. Begin with the simple level one circuits to get you introduced to electronics and basic circuits. Afterwards, the more complicated level two intermediate circuits will introduce transistors and sensors. This level roughly corresponds to the Key Stage 3 syllabus in school. When you’ve mastered level one and two you can move on to the level three circuits, which use thyristors and 555 timer chips with more components and different ways of setting up your inputs. Learn and experiment to see what you can make.

What can I learn with this kit?
Learn how to use common components and create circuits from them. Use and reuse components with no soldering, just plug the components into the breadboard and connect using the supplied wires. Learn how to build an electronic magnet, water alarm, timer, music chip, battery test and a QTC switch.

How easy is it to use this kit?
Broken up into level according to difficulty, this is a great way to get into electronics or to prepare for science classes at school. All you need is four AA batteries (Order Code L43AL) and a 9V (PP3) battery (Order Code L46AL). You may also require wire strippers. Once you’ve made the 29 circuits with instructions, try designing and building your own with the knowledge you’ve gained or remake your favourites and see how you can customise them.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is awesome, takes you from the dead simple to the pretty complicated in small easy steps! Includes high quality components (from simple to complex) but does not contain batteries, contrary to item description, or resistor colour guide, contrary to instructions.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from This kit contains most of the parts you will need for the AQA GCSE course in Electronics, plus some that you won't! But together with a set of breadboad jumper links the set will give a student a good start. The breadboard is a bit small for the project, but fine for the day-to-day course experiments.

Could you tell me the specs of the motor? What RPM does it deliver? 

Asked by: Flytree
Sorry this information is not provided by the kit provider, the motor is not offered for sale separately and no specifications are provided, needless to say it will be suitable for the electronic projects included in this kit. Full instruction for the kit can be found here https://maplindownloads.s3-eu-west-1.amazonaws.com/N94CH-9559.pdf
