The best way to learn electronics depends on your own personal learning style. Some people don't like starting anything without a thorough understanding of the underlying theory. The best starting point for this kind of learner is usually a good book such as those listed under Recommended Electronics Books in this section or in our complete Books section. Other people, especially kids, need to see results more quickly in order to remain motivated. For this kind of learner consider one of the activity kits in this section or the Learning Robotics section. Because motivation is so important, lots of beginners successfully start learning by building a robot kit or electronic kit that interests them. While formal learning is necessary in the long run, a good book doesn't teach anything if it just sits on a shelf. Don't be afraid to jump straight into our Robotics kits or Electronic Kits if that's what it takes to get you started.
Activity Kits for Kids
 
While younger kids generally aren't ready to learn much electronic theory, that doesn't mean that they can't start learning basic concepts and vocabulary. These kits are easy and fun to put together and produce devices that are fun to play with. Even after the device gets pushed to the back of the closet, your child will remeber that they can actually build and fix things themselves instead of being a passive consumer. Some parental guidance and help to read the entire manual is needed to make these kits a truly educational activity.

Activity Kits for Teens and Adults
 
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.

Picture of productSMT Soldering Training Kit: Decision Maker Project



Soldering is an essential skill if you want to build or repair your own electronic circuits. The latest electronics components utilize Surface Mount Technology (SMT) to reduce circuit size by putting componments in tiny packages with minimal soldering surface. This kit provides a comprehensive, hands-on introduction to manual SMT soldering. It includes a printed manual that that explains soldering theory and practice and shows how to identify the most commonly used electronic components. The kits includes a nicely made printed circuit board (PCB) and all the components needed to build an electronic decision maker as your first surface mount soldering project.

The kit includes a tube of solder and a strip of desoldering braid.
