Electronics for Kids – ELECTRONICS LEARNING CIRCUITS

The 21st Century focus. For young leaders of the future
Electronics for kids: Our children are gifted with the power to invent and achieve amazing technological feats. Most of all, it’s through creative play that they learn how to exploit these skills.
A Circuit is a complete path around which electricity can flow. It must include a source of electricity, such as a battery. Materials that allow electric current to pass through them easily, called conductors, can be used to link the positive and negative ends of a battery, creating a circuit.
The electrical circuit is a path or line through which an electrical current flows. The path may be closed (joined at both ends), making it a loop. A closed circuit makes electrical current flow possible. It may also be an open circuit where the electron flow is cut short because the path is broken. An open circuit does not allow electrical current to flow.
All the electronics that we use today are based on complex electronic circuits. Electronic circuits combine components, wires, and electricity to accomplish some function.
Some famous electronics engineers:
Nikola Tesla: made dozens of breakthroughs in the production, transmission and application of electric power. He invented the first alternating current (AC) motor. The TESLA electric car is named after him.
Steve Wozniak: co-founded Apple Computers along with Steve Jobs. Apple now makes the iPhone smartphone that many of us use.
David Packard: co-founded Hewlett-Packard along with Bill Hewlett. Hewlett Packard designs and manufactures PCs, printers, servers and computer networking equipment.
Jack Kilby was an American electrical engineer who helped develop the first integrated circuit while working at Texas Instruments. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics.
An integrated circuit (microchip, silicon chip, computer chip, etc) is a piece of specially prepared Silicon chip. It is the basic building block of the computer.
ELECTRONICS LEARNING CIRCUITS electronics for kids: Construct circuits with colourful building blocks. In the process learn about electricity and how electronic devices work. Most noteworthy, children eight and up can safely and easily begin experimenting with electronics circuits. The kit uses innovative snap-together building blocks.
Children engage easily with the uniquely-shaped and brightly coloured building blocks. In addition they have fun learning about electronics because the system is intuitive and easy to use.
The assembly diagrams are clearly illustrated. As a result children are easily able to follow them to construct functional circuits. Furthermore, because the circuit symbols are printed directly onto the blocks, children quickly become familiar with the symbols and learn how to read circuit diagrams.
Most of all, children learn and understand the principles of electronics through a variety of fun building projects. The projects include an alternating blinker, a police siren, an ambulance siren, and an alarm system.
In addition they build a light detector, a conductivity tester, a rain warning system, a timer and logic circuits.
Equally relevant, the kit comes with the tools and instructions that kids need to experiment with their own hands and learn first hand how electronics and electronic circuits work.
The electronics for kids kit includes:
• a 64-page illustrated guidebook
• 70 step-by-step, easy-to-follow hands-on experiments
• 55 specially designed parts including capacitors, resistors, transistors, LEDs (light emitting diodes), a photo-transistor, and a sound integrated circuit.
