This advanced system of snap-together electric building blocks lets you experiment with colorful light-up circuits as you dive into the basics of electricity. Install a sound module to generate the sounds of police cars, ambulances, or fire engines. Learn the important role that resistors and potentiometers play in an electronic circuit. Use a multimeter to measure invisible voltage and current flowing through your circuit. Investigate transistors in switches and amplifiers to learn how the logical circuits in computers work. Build circuits that use sensors to detect moisture, temperature, and visible light. Incorporate capacitors in your circuits to store and discharge electricity for specific functions, such as a countdown clock and a red-green alternate flasher. Test out the indispensable 555 timer to build some complicated circuits. Use an operational amplifier and an FM radio module to build an alarm clock. This deluxe kit features more than 140 electronic components include capacitors, resistors, transistors, LEDs (light emitting diodes), phototransistor, switches, speaker, integrated circuit, infrared LED, diodes, FM tuner, 555 timer, operation amplifier, two potentiometers, electrodes, voltage and current meter, microphone and a 9-volt battery pack.
