The Basic Electricity Kit has been designed as a low-cost, attractive and flexible alternative to the “circuit board” approach to investigations into simple circuits.
Each component such as a switch, rheostat, bulb holder, etc., is mounted on its own individual plastic panel with 4mm sockets. The panels are then formed into circuits by connecting them using 4mm stackable leads. Because this is “real circuit making,” the equipment will find users throughout secondary school science curricula. Each kit is supplied in two polystyrene trays that keep the units organized. Designed as a resource for the teaching of introductory electricity, these kits include well-structured instructional material and robust components mounted on tough, yellow plastic bases, each with two 4mm sockets. Kit A is for a group of up to six students, while Kit B contains additional items and consumables that could be issued by teachers as required. Only one Kit B would be needed by a class. A Teacher's Manual is included in Kit A that introduces each item of equipment and a range of tasks and investigations. Topics covered are bulbs and cells, switches, electromagnets, motors and buzzers.

  • An introductory circuit kit for children, with workcards covering the following topics: lighting a lamp, using motors, using a switch, a model house, lamps in series and parallel, making an electromagnet, conductors and insulators, a quiz for three or four people, heat from electricity
  • Components are mounted on bright blue bases, each with two 4mm diameter sockets
