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
