Thames & Kosmos Signature Series: Electronics Advanced Circuits

Spark excitement for circuitry and electrical engineering with advanced, experimental building.


  • -Surge past passive learning and craft cool, colorful, STEM-conquering circuits
  • -Explore the functions of electronics, like resistors, transistors, and capacitors
  • -Stage stimulating projects with real-world practicality and in-class functionality
  • -Uncover powerful sensors and investigate how complex computers really work
  • -Introduce electrical engineering concepts through simple, building block-style play

Using the Thames and Kosmos Electronics Advanced Circuits Kit and its myriad of cool, constructible components, young, STEM-inclined students can explore the curious world of circuitry and electrical engineering. Packed with resistors, potentiometers, capacitors, transistors, and much more, kids as young as 10 can power through over 140 perfectly illustrated projects and master the parts and steps required to complete a circuit. Both the projects they construct and the learning kids create will be supercharged thanks to the simplicity and in-depth opportunities for innovation made possible by Thames & Kosmos! Among the challenges children will decode are what happens when certain values change within a circuit and how each component affects the circuit as a whole. Plus, the easy interchangeability of the kit’s pieces makes for endless reusability and exploration for young, inquisitive, knowledge-seeking minds!

Utilizing simple interlocking pieces, this kit provides a wide variety of circuitry components for budding electrical engineers to explore. With no soldering, welding, or risky wiring required, circuit building is a breeze even for young, inexperienced hands. The wide variety of pieces in the kit comprise the electrical components needed to complete all 146 experiments in the manual, with some room to spice them up with a few common household items. Among the technologies found in the kit are a microphone, which converts speech to oscillations, a voltage meter, which measures the strength of currents, and an FM module, which kids can use to build a radio - all made possible through simple, snap-together circuitry. Simple but effective, the Electronics Advanced Circuits Kit is engaging and educational for fans of hands-on STEM education!
