With the Electronics: Advanced Circuits Experiment Kit, start out by experimenting with colorful light-up circuits as you dive int...o the basics of electricity! Install a sound module to generate the sounds of police cars, ambulances, or fire engines. Learn the important role resistors and potentiometers (variable resistors) play in an electronic circuit. Use a multimeter to measure invisible voltage and current flowing through your circuit, and investigate transistors in switches and amplifiers to learn how the logical circuits in computers work. Build circuits that use sensors to detect moisture, temperature, and visible light! Incorporate capacitors in your circuits to store and discharge electricity for specific functions, such as a countdown clock and a red-green alternate flasher. Test out the indispensable 555 timer to build some complicated circuits, or use an operational amplifier and an FM radio module to build an alarm clock. This kit uses the same unique electric building blocks as our other electronics kits, with the addition of many new advanced components, allowing you to build more complex circuits. The more than 140 electronic components include capacitors, resistors, transistors, LEDs (light emitting diodes), phototransistor, switches, speaker, integrated circuit, infrared LED, diodes, FM tuner, 555 timer, operation amplifier, two potentiometers, electrodes, voltage and current meter, microphone, and 9-volt battery pack. Requires one (1) 9 Volt battery (not included). For ages 10 and older. Materials: Plastic, Metal, Wire. Dimensions: 21.3 L x 14.6 W x 3.8 H - Packaged; 3.7 lbs Read More

Explore the cutting edge of automotive technology with this futuristic car! Construct the sleek, high-tech car, and then use your ...tablet or smartphone to control the car's motorized wheels to steer it in any direction. On your device's screen, watch the car as it drives through a virtual, augmented reality cityscape! Use the free downloadable app to script a simple program that instructs your car to automatically follow a predetermined course through your city. To build your virtual city, spread the AR (augmented reality) code cards out across the floor and point your tablet's camera at them. The app interprets the AR codes as buildings and houses, so that a virtual city springs up on your tablet's screen! Once you've built your city, you can manually steer your car through it, or program a route using a special draw and drive function in the app. But be careful: If your car gets too close to a building or runs a stoplight, you may hear police sirens! Through all of your experiments with the car, you will learn first-hand about the forward-looking technologies of driverless vehicles. Your smart car is actually a self-driving robotic automobile! Maybe you can't yet imagine your parents watching a DVD with you while they drive around town, or drivers safely texting their friends from behind the wheel; but automotive engineers expect that by around 2020, it will be completely normal for some cars to drive at least partly on their own! Major car manufacturers and technology companies are already working on their own versions of the self-driving cars of the future. You will learn about the technologies employed in autonomous vehicles, including laser detectors, GPS navigation, radar systems, and on-board computers. These technologies will allow cars to do everything from helping drivers park and avoid collisions to communicating with other cars and eventually driving completely independently, without a human driver. With the construction system in this kit, you can also build seven cool-looking models in addition to the smart car. Each of the models uses up to four electric motors, and each motor can be controlled independently with the app. The app's programming mode allows you to switch each of your car's four motors forward, backward, or off, in second-long increments, for up to three minutes! Illustrated step-by-step instructions allow you to build, remotely control, and program models of a motorcycle, forklift truck, futuristic car, airboat, helicopter, airplane, and flying car. A full-color, 64-page experiment manual provides assembly and usage instructions, along with a plethora of information about these fascinating technologies! The special Bluetooth Low Energy interface means your model's batteries will last much longer. Free downloadable app. Tablet or smartphone hardware requirements: iPad, iPhone, or iPod touch with Bluetooth Low Energy support, i.e. iPad mini; iPad 3 and 4 (iPad with retina display) iPad Air, iPhone 4S and 5 or newer; iPhone 5S and iPhone 5; iPod touch 5th generation or newer; requires iOS 5.0 or newer. Not Compatible with Android Devices. Ages 10 and up 219 pieces Requires (4) AA Batteries (not included).

Experiment with the zany behaviors, crazy motions, and fun applications of vibrating motors! From cell phone buzzers and video gam...e controllers to pavement compactors and industrial movers and sorters, vibrating motors are found in countless devices and machines. They are increasingly used in haptic (or tactile feedback) technologies, which use motion or vibration to communicate information to users through their sense of touch. With this kit, children can build seven different models centered on a vibrating motor that demonstrate real-world uses for these energizing machines. The vibrating motor and specially designed legs and feet allow the models to move around simply with oscillating motion! Build a vibrating robot that shimmies, wiggles, twirls, and dances around. Learn how to control the robot's direction by changing the geometry of its arms and its weight balance! Construct a Mars rover model that bounces and shakes across the pretend surface of Mars, or make a vibrating bug and watch it hop around the tabletop. Assemble a doodling machine that creates abstract designs on paper with markers or pens, or build models of a vibrating fitness machine and a pavement compactor. Put together a skating machine that whizzes across the floor! The secret behind the models' vibrating motion is an imbalanced weight that rotates on a driveshaft connected to an electric motor. You can even see the off-center weight spinning through the motor unit's transparent case! This special motor unit allows you to connect it to all sorts of models and power them up with vibrational energy. Experiment to build your own wacky creations! A full-color, 24-page, illustrated experiment manual provides step-by-step assembly instructions and scientific explanations.

Gyroscopes are used in countless devices! From smartphones, tablets, and video game controllers to airplanes and space telescopes,... gyroscopes perform tasks ranging from the everyday to the extraordinary. With this kit, children can explore the astonishing powers of the gyroscope by building seven motorized models, including a robot that can balance on two linear wheels and move along a tightrope! Kids will learn about the physical science principles that keep the robot balanced, making it appear to defy gravity. By constructing seven different models with the motorized gyroscope unit, young engineers can experiment with and learn about the science of gyroscopic devices and the indispensable role they play in our lives. The models include the gyroscopic robot, a balancing personal vehicle, a gyro horizon (or artificial horizon), a gyrocompass, a balancing game, a tightrope walker, and a flight simulator. At the core of these models is a unique motor-driven gyroscope. A gyroscope is a rapidly spinning wheel mounted in such as way that its axle can move in any direction; because of the laws of physics, the gyroscope reacts to external forces differently than a non-spinning wheel would: it resists forces in certain directions. This behavior allows it to be used for all sorts of applications related to balance, rotation, and orientation! Fun, hands-on experiments with the motorized gyroscope unit make these physical laws tangible and easier to comprehend. The word gyroscope comes from the Greek words gyro, for circle or rotation, and skopeein, meaning to see. The name was originally coined by a scientist who built the device in an experiment to see Earth's rotation. Although gyroscopes are used in very sophisticated devices, essentially they are simple mechanical instruments! A child's spinning toy top is a simple example of a gyroscope. A full-color, 24-page, illustrated experiment manual provides step-by-step assembly instructions and scientific explanations.
