Sparkle Labs is made up of designers and teachers. Our Discover Electronics Kit is designed to make learning electronics easy and fun. It is a curated selection of the basic parts to get started and learning right away. They are standard components and are still useful when you are ready to build your own projects. More then just a kit, it is an online, video course which you can access here: Discover Electronics Course.
The kit comes with clear, solderless breadboard and a simple battery pack. Clearly labeled parts and simple directions means you can have your first circuit up and running in minutes.
The manual explains whats going on inside. Illustrations aid in understanding.
Not just an electronics kit; online resources turn the kit into a video course pack.
