Product Description:

My childhood was plagued with overcomplicated electronics kits with massive breadboards and a tangle of resistors. After completing several of the 40 experiments, I feel this kit is much more concise than many and easy to construct. This hands-on lab is designed especially for those who need a knowledge of electronics leading to a career in electronics, computers or robotics. This Tronix Book 1 lab kit will provide a good foundation in basic electronics concepts and components. A 93-page workbook provides 40 briefly described lessons that follow a 3-step process: taking inventory of parts needed; building the circuitry; and performing the experiment (with procedure and observation). Experiments range from basic electronics lessons (how to use the circuit board, reading values, etc.) to component lessons (how diodes, resistors, photocells, transistors, etc. work) to more complicated electronic project lessons. My favorite experiment was the moisture detector. Others include the light controller, police siren and insanity alarm game. Additionally, 13 pages of lessons cover basic DC electronics (Ohm's, Kirchhoff's voltage and current laws, and resistors in parallel and in series). At the end of the workbook are 9 pages of Build-the-Schematic exercises, in which the more advanced student will view a schematic, read the theory behind each item and follow the procedure to build. Students can also fill in the date of each schematic's completion. Parts are identified visually and also according to lab used: includes a 6.5 x 1.5 breadboard, a 9V battery, ceramic disc capacitors, light emitting diodes, an integrated circuits/timer, a photocell, a battery snap, a timer, 3 standard LEDs,2 silicon rectifier, 4 pnp transistors, a speaker, resistors, a diode, a push-button switch, potentiometer, semiconductors, and 20 solid wires at different OHM ratings. While most helpful if learning alongside someone with some electrical experience, the variety of in-depth experiments allow high school students to have plenty of fun while learning ohm's law, circuits in parallel versus series and voltage principals. ~ Steve

Category Description for Fundamentals of Electronics Kits:

Introduce curious learners to the exciting world of electronics with the hands-on kits from Electronix Express. Lab 1 lays the foundation with an understanding of basic electronics. Once the foundation has been laid, expand learning by learning basic digital concepts in Lab 2. Completing the series, Lab 3 guides students to a better understanding of oscillators and amplifiers, which is essential to understanding television and radio transmissions, computer and quartz clocks, and video game audio dynamics.

I will be using this kit, for a second time, to teach a middle school introductory electronics class at a homeschool co-op.

I'm buying this for my son's homeschool co-op class.

Seems like a pedagoic way to learn about analog electronics.

While this is recommended above my son's grade level, he has already had a number of introductory electronics lessons. He just wants to do more and more. We will see how it will work for him once it arrives, but it seems as if the 'all in one' might just keep him challenged for a little while...summer, at least!

My son is interested in learning more about a career in electronics and after reading the review we decided this was a good entry level book with experiments to see if his interest is long-lasting before we invest in more expensive electronics educational items.

Great for Hands-on Learning
I have used this kit twice to teach jr. high electronics classes at a homeschool co-op. Lessons are well organized, easy to use, with clear instructions, and the perfect number of projects for our weekly classes. Beginners can catch on quickly to build functional circuits, while more advanced students benefit from the experiments. The only con is that little explanation is provided about how/why the individual components work, so I spend a little time each week researching to prepare a good explanation to the class.
