About this item

Electronics For Kids For Dummies takes an approach aimed to appeal to elementary-to-middle school aged students. The book breaks electronics into a series of smaller projects, each designed to teach a core concept in a fun and exciting way. The book also offers direction on next steps for students who aspire to further their training.

This book is full-color to make it easier for students to work through the visual steps for each project. It also offers a design using larger print to make it easier for students to navigate a bunch of intimidating text. Instead they can use this format to easily access the hands-on parts and applications for each project. 

Projects include:

  • Making an LED Flashlight
  • Two-Way Traffic Light
  • Using a Capacitor to Store and Release Electrical Energy
  • Lie Detector
  • Building a Smart Night Light
  • Making an LED Blink
  • Creating Light-controlled Sounds
