Parents' Choice Gold Award Winner

  • Thoroughly explore alternating current in addition to the more commonly addressed direct current (DC), the unidirectional current from standard batteries
  • Safely experiment with the physical science theories and applications of electricity
  • Conduct experiments to investigate electrical engineering from AC to DC
  • Start by exploring the basics of electric current by building simple circuits with batteries, switches, and lights
  • Build series and parallel circuits as well as more complex circuits such as a traffic signal and alarm system
  • Experiment to observe the physical effects of electric current such as heat and magnetism and discover electrochemistry by building a lemon battery
  • Play around with permanent magnets and electromagnets to learn about magnetism and its applications, such as relays and solenoid brakes
  • Operate an electromagnetic coil, capacitor, and transformer in an AC circuit and examine their behaviors at different frequencies
  • A special AC generator creates a harmless AC current with a variable frequency, from a few hertz (or cycles per second) to about 10 kilohertz
  • This device safely enables the exploration of electrical phenomena such as resonance and high-pass, low-pass, and band-pass behaviors
  • Measure frequencies with the electromechanical frequency meter
  • Plug-together electric building blocks make circuit assembly quick and easy
  • 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: 119 Experiments, 88 pieces, and 128 page color experiment manual
  • Requires: 4 AA batteries (sold separately)
  • Ages: 10-Up
