Fun Circuit Building Experiments for Beginners.Construct circuits with colorful electric building blocks to learn about electricity and how electronic devices work. With the innovative snap-together blocks in the ElectronX building system, children eight and up can safely and easily begin experimenting with electronic circuits. These building blocks are specially designed to make learning electronics fun and accessible. Because the blocks are brightly colored and have unique shapes, it is easy to follow the assembly diagrams to construct functional circuits. And because the circuit symbols are printed directly onto the blocks, you can quickly become familiar with the symbols and learn how to read circuit diagrams. The fun building projects include an alternating blinker, a police siren, an ambulance siren, an alarm system, a light detector, a conductivity tester, a rain warning system, a timer, and logic circuits. The electronic components in this kit include capacitors, resistors, transistors, LEDs (light emitting diodes), a phototransistor, a switch, 30 contact blocks, cable blocks, a battery holder, a speaker, and a sound integrated circuit. The 64-page, full-color experiment manual guides you through 70 circuit building experiments with easy-to-follow diagrams.Recommended Ages: 8 years & Up

Last century, the effort to put humans on the moon inspired a whole generation of scientists and engineers. More recently, we have been captivated by new discoveries made by robots on Mars. Our internet, GPS maps, and telecommunications networks all depend on satellites. Whether you're putting humans on the moon, robots on Mars, or satellites in orbit, you need rockets built by rocket scientists. This kit is, in fact, rocket science. But that doesn't mean it's difficult or boring! Physics comes alive in this action-packed series of experiments centered around a specially-designed "stomp-on" rocket launcher with three foam rockets. Launch water- and air-powered rockets to learn about action and reaction forces. Build a balloon-propelled rocket, boat, and race car. Play a game to try to hit target "planets" with the foam rockets. Explore the physical principles of gravity and inertia. Learn about air pressure. Read up on the different vehicles humans have used to escape Earth's gravitational pull.
Astonish yourself with optical illusions and amazing visual phenomena as you explore human perception and the physics of light. Experiment with light and the color spectrum by building a color wheel, a fiber optic peacock, and diffraction glasses. Learn how the eye and a camera are similar and how they are different. Build a camera obscura and pinhole glasses. Investigate lenses and light refraction. Experiment with spatial vision and depth perception with 3D glasses and an Ames room model. Find your blind spot and watch things disappear. View stunning optical illusions involving shapes, color, depth, and scale. Make a curved line look straight. Turn cardboard transparent. See the world shrink. Make white by mixing red, green, and blue, and see colors in black and white. See firsthand how your eye and brain work together to perceive color, light, depth, perspective, size, shape, and motion. Conduct over 35 experiments, guided by the 48-page, full-color manual.Recommended Ages:8 and up
Almost everyone has heard of a chemistry set. But until this kit was introduced, a physics set was almost unheard of. Physics is an essential science for everyone, and this kit provides a comprehensive explanation of mechanical physics. Through building 36 models and conducting subsequent experiments with the models, you will learn the fundamental laws of mechanical physics. Start by building small models, such as a fixed pulley, to learn about basic forces and simple machines. Then, work your way up to more complex machines, such as a pendulum clock, to learn more advanced concepts like work and centripetal force. This hands-on approach is both fun and effective because the principles of physics are demonstrated right in front of you. This kit includes more than 300 building pieces. The 64-page, full-color manual presents assembly instructions, experiments and explanations in a richly-illustrated, easy-to-follow manner.Recommended Ages: 8 years & Up
Explore the power of water by building models and conducting experiments. Build a waterwheel, a sawmill, and a hammer mill to harness the energy from water to do physical work. Learn about water pressure with a water tower, communicating vessels, and a fountain. Generate electricity with a hydroelectric power station. Discover how we can generate electricity by harnessing water power from ocean waves, tides, and rivers. Recommended Ages: 8 years & Up
CHEM C3000 is the ultimate chemistry set. This kit includes all of the components from CHEM C2000, plus dozens of additional tools and chemicals, and 100 additional experiments, for a total of more than 350 experiments. The 192-page, full-color experiment manual is written at a more advanced level than the other CHEM kit manuals. You could call it a textbook, but the manual is too much fun to make that comparison. CHEM C3000 has a similar hands-on approach to teaching chemistry as our other CHEM kits, but also teaches more advanced topics such as chemical equations, atomic structures, and the periodic table. These concepts are critical to continued study of chemistry. CHEM C3000 is an excellent preparation for high-school level chemistry.Recommended Ages: 12 years & Up

When you think of art, do you think of painting and sculpture? Bob Raczka shows us that even these traditional artistic mediums can be created in untraditional ways. Art can also be draped, chiseled, pasted and drizzled. But unusual approaches to painting and sculpture are only the beginning. We learn that art comes in many forms - a wall or a ceiling, a lamp or a rug, a goblet or a musical instrument. Simple rhyming verse pairs beautifully with reproductions of twenty-seven works of art, ranging from 17,000-year-old cave paintings to some very interesting contemporary creations. Each piece is as unique as the artist themselves, and each is included here to expand our notions of what art is.Book Details:Format: PaperbackPublication Date: 5/7/2003Pages: 32Reading Level: Age 7 and Up
