The "LED Scope Part 2" course advances the skills and knowledge developed in Part 1 (not-included and sold-separately - Part 1 is a mandatory pre-requisite, as components built in Part 1 are also used in this course) to build a fully functional oscilloscope-a key analytical instrument used to graph electrical signals as they vary over time. The book explains each new function's criteria, and then has students build and test a circuit module-as they progress, the controls of an oscilloscope are developed one at a time.
Each chapter begins with the basic theory and an overview of the circuit required and the components needed. Then detailed, step by step directions for its assembly, including "best practice" techniques, are given. Students then see the display graph the invisible electrical signals from the Part 1 circuits. Each chapter also closes with a summary page with a few bullet lines of the key principles demonstrated.
In this course students learn more complex electronic circuits and the how's and why's of using an oscilloscope at the same time. In addition, since the LED display array requires about 500 neat solder joints, this course provides additional purposeful and motivated soldering practice.
Part 2 will take approximately 30-35 hours; this course can be completed in one semester or over the summer. More than two students may complete Part 2 as learning occurs while doing the testing of the circuit additions, rather than the assembly skills.
LED Scope Part 2 comes in a sturdy shipping box containing a full size ring-binder notebook, preprinted card stock Schematics and Placement Guides for easy reference, a "Handy-Sheet" of formulas, key codes, and component details, Four packets of all the components and printed circuit boards, and a ring-binder CD holder and CD with all the course material in PDF format. Over 250 pages of instructions, including 250 diagrams and pictures, are provided. Tools and solder not included; the same tools and solder that were used in Part 1 are required for Part 2. If you need these tools, the Quality Tool Set is available to purchase separately.

My son is taking a DC electric course for aviation in college. He doesnt expect to see any new material until midterm. Obviously you are right on track.
—Rebecca, whose son completed LED Scope Part 1&2
LED Scope Parts 1 & 2 . . . explains not only the what and how of electronics, but also explains why things work. . . Soldering skills, an essential skill for budding electronics enthusiasts, are also taught, making this a truly complete electronics course.
—Amanda, mother of two beta testers
I did the course when I was younger and it sparked a passion in my heart of the digital world and it got me a job in IT. Now I am using what I have learned in my life.
—Josh, now 21
"It provided very clear topics, and it explained why everything works instead of just explaining that it works. The (reading material) and the circuit building worked together to give me an understanding of the principles of Electronics."
—Cameron Age 14
When I began...I did not know anything about the components (except for the LEDs) because I had not done anything with electronics before. I liked that I could easily understand the function of each new component as I read about them in the lessons."
—Jonadad Age 15
The Old Schoolhouse Magazine: My bottom line is that this course truly teaches electronics and gives plenty of hands-on practice. The final step in most of the chapters is, Testing and Analysis. I like that.
—The Old Schoolhouse Magazine, Review of Part 1 Spring 2015
This is a class, not just a kit. You will learn real electronics, not just bits and pieces here and there. The instructions are clear and methodical. Dont Just Build Something Learn Something! is printed on the box, and it is clearly the driving force behind this project.
—The Old Schoolhouse Magazine, Review of Part 2 January 2017
If you have a child interested in electronics and have been wonder- ing where to begin, look no further. . . exactly what youre looking for. . .This is a completely self-teaching course . . .requiring no teacher preparation.
Home School Enrichment Magazine, Review of Part 1 March/April 2014
If you have a student interested in really learning the nuts and bolts of how electronics work, then go buy both kits today because having done Part 1, your student will be eager to do Part 2 as well!
