Mindsets Temperature Sensor 10 Pack Kit
• Create 10 temperature activated LED boards
• Solder and build your own circuit with resistor, thermistor, transistor and LED
• Learn about electronics
• The kit comes in 10 pieces per board to solder together
• Suitable for ages 11+ with supervision
• Requires a DC 3-9V power supply for each of the 10 boardsWhat does this kit make?
Create a small circuit with an LED which will activate as the temperature rises. The kit includes all the components for 10 boards. Use to detect higher temperatures levels and the sensitivity can be adjusted. You can even change the position of the thermistor and Potentiometer (otherwise known as a variable resistor) to have an LED which comes on when the temperature is below certain level. The circuits each require a DC 3-9V power supply and come with a battery connectorWhat can I learn?
This kit is a great way to introduce soldering and electronics. Thermistors have low resistance as they get warmer and the potentiometer can be adjusted to create the right amount of resistance to switch the LED on at the correct temperature level. A soldering iron and solder is required to assemble this kit click here
