Explore electricity in depth with Electricity Master Lab by Thames & Kosmos. We encounter electricity everywhere in our lives — at home, in school, even our bodies have electric charges in them. Alternating current (AC), or electric current that cyclically changes its direction, plays a particularly important role in our world. Countless appliances and devices, including televisions, electric heaters, desk lamps, and smartphone transformers are operated with AC.

This is the first science experiment kit to thoroughly explore alternating current in addition to the more commonly addressed direct current (DC), the unidirectional current from standard batteries. With this kit, you can safely experiment with the physical science theories and applications of electricity. Conduct 119 experiments to investigate electrical engineering from AC to DC. Start by exploring the basics of electric current by building simple circuits with batteries, switches, and lights. Build series and parallel circuits as well as more complex circuits such as a traffic signal and alarm system.

Experiment to observe the physical effects of electric current such as heat and magnetism. Discover electrochemistry by building a lemon battery. Play around with permanent magnets and electromagnets to learn about magnetism and its applications, such as relays and solenoid brakes.

Operate an electromagnetic coil, capacitor, and transformer in an AC circuit and examine their behaviors at different frequencies. A special AC generator creates a harmless AC current with a variable frequency, from a few hertz (or cycles per second) to about 10 kilohertz. This device safely enables the exploration of electrical phenomena such as resonance and high-pass, low-pass, and band-pass behaviors. Measure frequencies with the electromechanical frequency meter.

The plug-together electric building blocks make circuit assembly quick and easy. A 128- page, full colour manual provides illustrated assembly instructions. 88 pieces. 4 x AA batteries are required. Dimensions of box 54 x 27 x 9.5 cm. Age 10-16 years.

Award winning – Parents’ Choice Gold Award Winner.

Further Information

Thames & Kosmos (T&K) was founded in 2001 with the mission of improving informal science education outside of the classroom by publishing high-quality science kits for children of all ages. T&K places an emphasis on teaching concepts and skills through tactile processes. Their vision is to give all children access to real, physical activities and projects that teach them about how things work; parents, grandparents, and teachers are active guides in these investigations. It is their firm belief that children who connect with the world around them grow up to be inquisitive adults, creative thinkers, and engaged citizens with confidence to careers in science, technology, and engineering.
