Product Description

The field of electrical engineering comes alive with hands-on activities for kids ages 5 to 10. Filled with glowing, buzzing, and spinning fun, this guide to electronics for kids helps them fall in love with science as they explore the mechanics behind everyday devices. Whether it’s a light-up birthday card, an automated bubble blower, or an alarm clock, every project features easy-to-find components and simple directions that give kids the guidance they need to build. Expand their learning with explanations of how these electronics for kids connect to larger STEAM ideas! The 20 fun builds introduce the science behind electronics through projects that kids can do at home with affordable materials and a little adult supervision. In addition, educational explanations go beyond other electronics books with simple breakdowns of exactly what happened and why, ensuring kids get the most out of each activity. Projects start simple and get more challenging as they go, helping young learners grow their skills and develop a lifelong love of science (plus technology, engineering, art, and math). 122 pages, softcover. Ages 5 and up.

The clear step-by-step directions, engaging graphics, and interesting activities with easily available materials make this book a terrific choice for parents and teachers hoping to interest their kids in science. The author has an elementary school teacher's understanding of what interests kids and a professor's insight about what leads to learning and motivation for all ages." —Richard E. Clark, parent, Emeritus Professor of Educational Psychology and Technology and Co-Director, Center for Cognitive Technology, University of Southern California
"Young children are natural engineers, and this book is a wonderful guide for exploring electrical engineering. Dr. Tofel-Grehl does an excellent job of explaining each project, and the pictures are very helpful. This book could be used by both parents and elementary teachers to engage children in projects that are fun and relevant to their everyday lives." —Kimberly H. Lott, PhD, associate professor of science education, Utah State University
"An inspiring collection of projects that will spark kids’ interest in electronics. The projects provide clear directions to guide young makers into a world in which they design circuits that turn on lights, ring bells, and make bubbles—what more could you ask for?" —Yasmin B. Kafai, EdD, University of Pennsylvania
