About this product

Children eight and up can safely and easily experiment with electric current and magnetic fields using the colourful snap-together blocks and components in this hands-on kit. Experiment with push buttons and on-off switches. Assemble circuits that include a spinning motor, two switches, and up to three light bulbs. Conduct tests to see which materials are magnetic. Finally, put everything you have learned to good use by constructing a loudspeaker, an electromagnetic relay switch, and a morse code telegraph key.

Learn about the force of magnetism and magnetic poles. Magnetise a metal. Use iron fillings to make invisible magnetic fields visible. Investigate magnetic force and direction with a magnetic pendulum device.

Learn how a compass works and about Earth's magnetic fields. Conduct a series of experiments with a sturdy electromagnet.

The components are specially designed to make learning fun and accessible.

The electrical blocks fit together with simple plug-and-socket connectors. Because the blocks are brightly coloured and have unique shapes, it is easy to follow the assembly diagrams to construct functional devices.

The 64-page, full-colour experiment manual guides you through experiments with easy-to-follow diagrams.
