Basic Electronics for Tomorrows Inventors

A Thames & Kosmos Book

by Nick Dossis

Learn about Electronics with fun experiments and projects

Created in partnership with Thames & Kosmos, Basic Electronics for Tomorrow's Inventors introduces you to essential electronics concepts through fun, do-it-yourself projects.

You'll get tips for setting up your home workbench, safely handling materials, and creating a variety of entertaining gadgets.

All of the projects and experiments use inexpensive, readily available electronic components and different types of breadboard, which creates a plug-and-play environment for you to build electronic circuits—no soldering required!

Inside you'll find:
  • Things You'll Need--lists of all the electronic components and equipment required for each experiment
  • A Circuit Diagram--shows how each of the electronic components are connected to produce the experiment
  • How the Circuit Works--identifies the building blocks used to make the circuit and helps you read circuit diagrams
  • Breadboard Layout--close-up photographs that guide you in building each electronic circuit
  • Time to Experiment--explains how to get your experiment working
