      Activity Kits for Teens and Adults Category

         Show Cart

      These kits consist of a bag of parts and a book of instructions for building a wide variety of electronic circuits. Even if you just follow the pictures and assemble the circuits you will learn the basic vocabulary of electronics, learn how to identify basic electronic components and get some basic building experience. By carefully reading the manual as you work, you can get a good overview of electronic theory. These kits emphasize hands-on activity more than teaching theory, so for deeper knowledge they should be accompanied or followed by studying one of the books in our Recommended Electronics Books category.
