Electronics for Kids: Play with Simple Circuits and Experiment with Electricity!

Electronics for Kids: Play with Simple Circuits and Experiment with Electricity!

Why do the lights in a house turn on when you flip a switch? How does a remote-controlled car move? And what makes lights on TVs and microwaves blink? The technology around you may seem like magic, but most of it wouldn’t run without electricity.

Electronics for Kids demystifies electricity with a collection of awesome hands-on projects. In Part 1, you’ll learn how current, voltage, and circuits work by making a battery out of a lemon, turning a metal bolt into an electromagnet, and transforming a paper cup and some magnets into a spinning motor. In Part 2, you’ll make even more cool stuff as you:
–Solder a blinking LED circuit with resistors, capacitors, and relays
–Turn a circuit into a touch sensor using your finger as a resistor
–Build an alarm clock triggered by the sunrise
–Create a musical instrument that makes sci-fi soundsThen, in Part 3, you’ll learn about digital electronics—things like logic gates and memory circuits—as you make a secret code checker and an electronic coin flipper. Finally, you’ll use everything you’ve learned to make the LED Reaction Game—test your reaction time as you try to catch a blinking light!With its clear explanations and assortment of hands-on projects, Electronics for Kids will have you building your own circuits in no time.

Alesis CompactKit 4 | Portable 4-Pad Tabletop Electronic Drum Kit with Drumsticks

Alesis CompactKit 4 | Portable 4-Pad Tabletop Electronic Drum Kit with Drumsticks

The Alesis CompactKit 4 is a tabletop electronic drumset that's a great first kit for anyone learning the basics of drumming—you even get a pair of drumsticks.

Four pads deliver 80 percussion and effect sounds with realistic feel and response. To make sure you get the most out of them, the CompactKit 4 includes interactive game- and coach-modes that teach basic drum patterns and styles. Even if you've never picked up a stick before, the visual feedback on the LCD screen makes it possible to train and get the fundamentals, so you can play along with the music of dozens of included songs. You can adjust the tempo to keep the difficulty level at the right amount of challenge, too.

CompactKit 4's lightweight, flat design makes it easy to set up around the house to play and then put out of the way when it's not being used. The all-in-one electronic drumset is also ready to travel on your flight and plug into the wall outlet when you get to your hotel room. Or you can put in six C batteries, so it can sit in a passenger's lap during a road trip for up to six hours.

Either way, the built-in speakers and headphone output jack mean you can quickly switch between public performance and private practice—whatever fits the circumstances best.

It all adds up to make CompactKit 4 the perfect portable electronic drum kit for an aspiring rock star drummer, no matter their age.
