What people are saying
The kit I purchased has been a great hit. It is exactly what I needed. I am teaching two of my grandsons. They are young so I am not focusing on the math at this time but using the book and the electronics components to teach the concepts.
I am also teaching my son who is 30 years old and an Economics majors graduate the basic of electrical engineering. He needs it to expand his knowledge to help him on his current job. He is a project manager and could use the knowledge.

The kit was for me personally. I am 44 year old business owner located in NYC. I have always been interested in learning electronics but always failed to retain the knowledge because of the weak link between theory and practical.
I looked into schools or organizations that would give me a solid foundation but was unable to find something that would take me from zero to sixty quick enough and with enough of a balance between theory and practical.
Recently one of my machines at worked crashed mechanically and I was eventually able to debug the issue. However, with my luck the next day the electrical system malfunctioned and I was crippled. I was determined to finally get hatted in this area. Books did not work…and most of the kits are for children. I was very very close to buying the one from Elenco I think. It had snapping components which I felt would help me understand electrical diagrams. Then I found your kit. I chose it for several reasons:
- It seemed more for an adult.
- It did not have 700 or 1000 projects which I felt was ridiculous.
- It had video which would be a great substitute for a classroom setting.
- You understand the significance between theory and practical.
- Your kit was a stepping stone to branch out in whatever direction I wanted.
- The projects seem very diverse…that cover a broad span of lessons.
- You don’t have 12 different kits to choose from. You had basically one kit and that kit was the only thing I needed to orient myself to electronics so I can decide on my next steps.

As a robotics educator for more than ten years, both in the USA and internationally, I found the kits engaging, fun and solidly grounded in science.
The instruction books are clearly written, demonstrating science principles in a way that students find rewarding and teacher find solidly educational. I use them in my introductory robotics programs for more than 80 students per school year. I would recommend them for any school program that teaches physics, robotics, or basic science.

I was looking for something that I can use with my kids to teach them about electricity. This kit is geared towards high schoolers and up, but I already had success with much younger kids-7yo and 9yo who have already played with other electronic sets and understand the basic ideas behind circuits.
This kit requires no soldering so really was a natural progressions. I think that high schoolers definitely will like using this set. It is so well organized, there is just no way of misplacing components. Although I can understand if they want to learn to solder but let's face it most circuits are printed these days and nobody needs to solder anymore. The books are colorful, well organized, everything is documented-step by step process and functionality.
