90 minutes workshop
$8.00 per student (includes all parts)
Suitable for Science classes and Technology classes.
Year 5 to Year 10
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.
