The Science of Remote Controls

Ever wonder how your TV remote works? Find out for yourself with the Science of Remote Controls kit! Build your own remote control for a special LED circuit, and learn about the science of infrared light in a hands-on way. The special receiver circuit is receptive to a wide range of signals, so you can control your circuit with different radiation sources from around the house. Use your circuit to figure out which household items operate on infrared.

This is a basic kit that makes a good afternoon project. It is recommended that you have previous soldering experience, though it is possible to make the project without solder. Check out what others are saying about the The Science of Remote Controls project build!

You Will Need

  • Soldering iron and solder (Optional but recommended)
  • Small screw driver
  • Electrical tape
