  • Conduct more than 60 electrifying experiments with circuits and magnetic contraptions to learn about electricity and magnetism, and how these two fundamental properties are closely related
  • Safely and easily experiment with electric current and magnetic fields using the colorful snap-together blocks and components in this hands-on kit
  • Build series and parallel circuits to light up a light bulb and experiment with push buttons and on-off switches
  • Assemble circuits that include a spinning motor, two switches, and up to three light bulbs
  • Conduct tests to see which materials are magnetic and learn about the force of magnetism and magnetic poles
  • Magnetize a metal and use iron fillings to make invisible magnetic fields visible
  • Investigate magnetic force and direction with a magnetic pendulum device
  • Learn how a compass works and about Earth's magnetic fields and conduct a series of experiments with a sturdy electromagnet
  • Finally, put everything you have learned to good use by constructing a loudspeaker, an electromagnetic relay switch, and a morse code telegraph key
  • Components are specially designed to make learning fun and accessible and the electrical blocks fit together with simple plug-and-socket connectors
  • Because the blocks are brightly colored and have unique shapes, it is easy to follow the assembly diagrams to construct functional devices
  • Manual guides and teaches you through experiments with easy-to-follow diagrams
  • All Thames & Kosmos sets are safety tested and approved, offer thorough saftey precautions, and come with full-color experiment manuals
  • Correlates to Next Generation Science Standards
  • Kit contains: 62 Experiments, 60 pieces, and 64 page color experiment manual
  • Requires: 2 AA batteries (sold separately)
  • Ages: 8-Up
