Product Description

This kit contains both "LED-Scope, Part 1, Basic Electronics" and "LED-Scope, Part 2, LED Array Oscilloscope" kits and provides a comprehensive two part course in basic Electronics. Hands-on and student-directed, this course is ideal for science-loving kids who have an interest in how everything works!

Part 1 teaches kids the practical skills of soldering, and with a basic understanding of circuits, the student gains an ability to trouble shoot and repair basic low voltage circuits. Part 1 covers the nature of electricity, basic electronic components, how to read a schematic diagram, how to solder/un-solder, how to use a digital multimeter, how to apply Ohm's law and basic math to analyze circuits, how individual electronic components work and why.

Part 2 advances the skills and knowledge developed in Part 1 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. 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.

If you have two children who work well together and are willing to share the finished product, you could have them build Part 1 together. However, it is not recommended to have more than two students working on Part 1 together as this would not provide sufficient soldering practice without additional materials. Part 2 can be used with 2 or more students

Part 1 will take approximately 25 hours. Part 2 will take approximately 30-35 hours. Each part can be completed in one semester or as a summer course. This course does not assume parents have prior knowledge of science or electronics.

Tools are not included; if you do not already have the necessary tools the Quality Tool Set is available for purchase separately.

Part 1 contains a full size ring-binder notebook, preprinted card stock Schematics and Placement Guides for easy reference, zipper binder pouch of all components and printed circuit boards, ring-binder CD holder, and a wall transformer for power. All the course material is in PDF format on a data CD and consists of over 270 pages of instructions, including 200 diagrams and pictures. Tools and solder are required, but are sold separately.

Part 2 contains 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.

“The LED Scope Parts 1 & 2 lessons prepare students for a job or a career in electronics. Once he or she is captivated by this project and builds a working oscilloscope a piece at a time, they will know the fundamental elements upon which all electronics rely.”

—Bryan Dubois, Vice President of the Special Project Group, Patton Electronics Company

“My son is taking a DC electric course for aviation in college. He doesn’t 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. “Don’t 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 you’re 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!”

—Home School Enrichment Magazine, Review of Part 2 May/June 2015
