Explore the foundations of electrical engineering by learning how to solder with Very Useful Circuits. Each kit allows students to practice and master through-hole soldering. Students will be able to test their work on functioning circuit on the PCB board. Once soldered these useful circuits bring projects alive.
What is soldering?
It's joining two electronic components to ensure a secure electrical connection. Soldering can help you take electronics projects to another level. You can learn more about soldering with this beginner's guide on Makerspaces.com.
Transistors are the building blocks for modern electronics and the Touchpad circuit is a great introduction to their basic function.
Take your exploration of transistors the next step beyond the TouchPad with this board that uses a a photo-transistor coupled with an NPN transistor to create a light activated circuit.
Learn how to make LEDs blink while exploring how capacitors work.
Build a circuit that senses a change in a sensor while exploring the properties of this fundamental circuit, the Wheatstone Bridge.
