Top customer reviews
I recommend something like this for any electronics enthusiastic kids:
A couple caveats:
I recommend to first pick out a simple project from the many exercises, then go over what results to expect. This pays off later, when it successfully happens. They will be excited, feel empowered, and ready to move on to the more sophisticated experiments.
Careful checking of your work is important with any electronics before applying power. So you may need to restrain their initial enthusiasm to simply dive in by popping pieces into place on the breadboard as fast as possible and without careful placement immediately following project assembly (based on the pictorials). It is important to teach the importance of first checking their work against the project drawings--line by line and component by component (along with correct polarity), BEFORE connecting the batteries. If you don't, you may end up with burned out transistors and other modules.
This isn't complex; it's just teaching kids to be methodical; to always carefully check their work before powering up. This is how to get happy results and encourage more experimentation.
This is much more sturdier and easier to use than the old 1980's version. There are quite a few fun projects. Kids today are not very interested in basic electronics. If your kids are into video game and tablet apps, then chances are they won't be playing this this kit more than a day or two before losing interest.
It's a great product. I wish kids today could enjoy things like this more often. This would have been a hot seller 25 years ago.
