Product Details

Electricity Master Lab Science Experiment Kit
by Thames & Kosmos

Electricity is everywhere in our lives: at home, in school and even in our bodies. Alternating current, or electric current that cyclically changes its direction, plays a very important role in our world. Countless appliances and devices, including our televisions, electric hearts and smartphone transformers are all operated with AC electricity.

The Master Lab is the first science experiment kit to thoroughly explore AC, in addition to the more common direct current (DC) that comes from standard batteries. With this kit, you'll be able to safely experiment and explore the physical science theories and applications of electricity. Conduct 110 experiments that will investigate electrical engineering from AC to DC. You'll start by exploring the basics of electric currents by building simple circuits using batteries, switches and lights. Then move on to build series and parallel circuits, as well as more complex circuits such as a traffic signal and alarm system.

Use your experiments to observe the physical effects of electric current, such as heat and magnetism while discovering the electrochemistry by building a lemon battery. Play around with a permanent magnet and electromagnets to learn about magnetism and its applications, such as relays and solenoid brakes.

You'll build and operate an electromagnetic coil, capacitor and transformer in an AC circuit, and examine their behaviors at different frequencies. A special AC generator will create a harmless AC current with a variable frequency, ranging from a few hertz to approximately 10 kilohertz. The device safely enables the exploration of electrical phenomena such as resonance, high-pass, low-pass, and band-pass behaviors. You will also be able to measure frequencies with the electromechanical frequency meter.

The plug-and-play style of electric building blocks make assembling circuits quick and easy, and the 96-page, full-color manual provides illustrated and detailed assembly instructions.
