Make: How to Use a Breadboard Kit

Strengthen your electronics skills with this self-guided learning course. Inside, you'll find a full-color handbook from the publishers of Make: magazine, a solderless breadboard, and all the components you’ll need. The book, How to Use a Breadboard, is illustrated with comic book-style panels to explain the basic principles of using a breadboard and then guides you through 10 fun and educational projects. Hands-on learning of how to use a breadboard will give you a solid, introductory unit in fundamental electronics. You will learn how to build the following circuits:

  • Dark Detector
  • LED Flasher
  • Electronic Cricket
  • Breathing LED
  • Screaming Siren
  • Bike Signal Light
  • Touch Switch
  • Light Theremin
  • Blues Organ
  • LED Color Organ
Unlike "building-block" packages designed for kids, this kit introduces you to fundamental electronic components and gives you practical circuits to assemble. As you gain experience building the circuits, you'll also learn how to read actual schematics (the circuit diagrams symbols that serve as the shorthand language of electronics). Bonus features include an "X-ray" illustration of the breadboard and a tutorial on deciphering resistor color codes. The glossary at the end of the handbook provides definitions and illustrations for terms that may be unfamiliar to you.

Electronics is the perfect STEM-related subject because it incorporates a variety of different skills and materials from all four STEM disciplines: science, technology, engineering, and mathematics. There is no better way to learn than by making things yourself. During this course, you won't be handed all the answers, for you will be encouraged to experiment and be asked questions that require you to think critically. Roughly 10 hours will be needed to complete all the projects. Get started with your breadboard experiments today!
