Like the old Radio Shack spring circuits but updated with modern teaching styles. The growing DIY movement is empowering people to take control of their products and environment. Discover Electronics Kit contains everything you need to learn the basics of electronics and make your own projects. It contains the most common electronics components as well as a prototyping breadboard for you to get started right away. Easy full color diagrams teach you how to bring your own ideas to life.
The Discover electronics kit uses standard components. All of these parts can be used by the beginner or the advanced user. As you grow and learn all of the parts in the kit are still useful in more advanced projects and can be expanded on by ordering additional parts from electronics suppliers.
