What sort of experiments can I do?
Whether you’re enthusiastic about electronics or just experimenting this is a great kit to play with. Use the instructions to build eight different experiments which let you create touch and light activated sounds or LEDs and even allow you to set up your board to flash a LED in time with the sound. Runs off two AAA Batteries (sold separately Order Code <L42AL>)

How do you use the boards?
No soldering is required with this kit, all the components can be connected using the supplied wires fitting into the springs on the board. When you’re done with one experiment simply move the wires to the next combination on the instructions for a whole new experience. Learn about electricity and electronics and have fun doing it with the Tronex 32803 kit. Discover how resistors, LDRs, LEDs, speakers, transistors and wires can be used.

This kit should be used with adult supervision and assistance and is suitable for children aged 8+.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Although the funky colours of this kit suggest it's just a children's toy, even adults new to electronics may find it a cheap way of getting to know some important components. There are a few good electronic starter kits out there (e.g. the Conrad 3964 Basic Electronics Learning Kit), and all of them give you a taste of what can be achieved with a few jumper wires, resistors, capacitors, transistors and LEDs. But beware this product here is not as flexible as it doesn't contain a breadboard. It has all the components pre-mounted with numbered spring-type terminals. For each experiment, a little booklet tells you how to wire between these terminals in a connect-the-dots kind of way, but it also shows you the correct electronic schematic. It's good fun for kids for an afternoon (until they've had the the LED blinking or the speaker playing Happy-birthday after touching a metal plate). Unfortunately, the booklet doesn't give explanations for the phenomena (e.g. that they've essentially built a Darlington circuit that amplifies the current running through their finger to light the LED). However, if you still find reading electronic schematics too difficult to translate into a circuit on a breadboard, this may be a (soon boring) alternative even for adult beginners. Unfortunately, my 6-year old made a few fantasy circuits that the transistors didn't forgive.

I am making a school project with my son will it provide a rocket sound at all?
