|The intricate world of electronics becomes tangible with the hands-on circuit building experiments in Electronics Workshop 2. This advanced science kit is designed for the older child or adult hobbyist with a serious interest in circuitry, constructing electronic devices, and investigating the digital world.
This kit offers a detailed overviewof basic electronic components and an introduction to advanced components, such as amplifiers and integrated circuits. Start with lessons in simple series and parallel circuits, resistance, capacitance, voltage, current, and power. Move on to more complicated circuits using diodes, LEDs, transistors, sensors, and coils. Work your way up to advanced circuits using amplifiers and complex integrated circuits incorporating a 555 timer, MOSFET amplifier, digital counter and quad op-amp.
You will learn how to follow circuit diagrams and schematics to assemble the components into circuits. There is no soldering involved in these assemblies.
Some of the projects you can build include light meters, timers and counters, reflective light tripwires, electronic thermometers, blinking lights, beeping alarms, logical switches, metronomes, moisture sensors, radio receivers, voltage meters, mood indicators, traffic lights, telephone
switches, digital music makers, and infrared remote controls.
A two-color, 172-page experiment manual guides you through building more than 300 circuits and understanding how
they work. Ages 12 and up.
