Toilet Roll Radio

Students will be introduced to the basic components of electronics, namely the resistor, diode, tuning capacitor, inductance coil, aerial and earth.

Then they will then assemble a ‘toilet roll radio receiver’ (crystal set), based on a cardboard toilet roll tube, that actually works.

Information will also be provided on how to build other sets.

This is an inspiring introduction to the study of electronics.
