The Explorer2 electronics kit is designed to build upon the skills already learnt and to increase the student's knowledge of the principles of electronics. The kit is for use in the home or the classroom and could be used to enhance the understanding of Key Stage 3 and 4 electronics. How do the parts fit together? The parts are designed for quick and easy assembly, all components being connected together with press-studs on a baseboard. Very little skill is required to assemble the components so making the kit suitable for all abilities. A manual showing over 900 circuits that can be built with the kit is provided.

What a surprise. Primary Plus comes in a massive box with enough parts to construct over 500 experiments.
Inside there was a large 71 page manual printed in colour which explains how to assemble hundreds of circuits, switches and sensors.
My kids think that they are playing a game and having fun, but at the same time they have been learning about Electronics.
This is certainly easier than trying to get them to do their homework.
This week we constructed a working AM radio from the components which was exciting to see how it all works.
We experimented with making lamps get brighter and got a motor working. The flying fan was great fun.
The kids made loads of noise experimenting with producing electronic music - then with electronic police and ambulance sirens.
We had to steer them to some of the quieter projects like building a vibration sensor - a rain detector - light operated circuits.
switches - resistance and capacitors - burglar alarm circuits etc.
Our local school have encouraged the kids to use it, the teacher commented that
"it is a stepping stone to Key Stage 3 Science and Electronics and it is helping to teach part of the National Curriculum".
Not totally sure what she meant by that, but it sounded like the kids would greatly benefit from the additional things they will learn.
The kit includes loads of additional sensors and alarms components so we are about to try out making a whole range of other Electronic Circuits.
Our family has an age range of 7 to 15 and they all seem to have enjoyed using this kit so we would definitely recommend it.Read more ›
We sat and went through the basics of the box - WARNING - BUY 4 x AA BATTERIES (I had to make an emergency trip out!) - and then read the instructions. These are extremely educational and benefit from an adult reading them to give some help. Then you just start clipping the components together, with everything coloured, numbered and shown in nice diagrams. It is simple and actually great fun.
My 13 year old daughter looked on from a distance and was soon joining in. It is so interesting and you learn a lot by doing. There is a base to set up the circuits but we found this pretty useless so we just did them on the carpet. The more complex circuits (nothing is too hard to work out, in fact it is simple and my son did all the ones so far)are slightly frustrating as the poppers come undone now and then but this is part of the fun.
There are some great parts to add - reed switches which work with the included magnet, sound switches and even a photo sensitive switch (use a torch to set it off!).
Our favourite experiment so far (we are only on 40 out of 500) was the LED/light bulb, where moving different switches turns on different lights. Amazingly clever and we all learnt a lot about series/parallel just from this. We also enjoyed the conductivity tester and the complex "happy birthday" circuit turned on my light.
A word of warning is to mind out the way of the fan, it can build up some speed before firing off - seeing my son's face was great when it went off the first time!Read more ›
