3 Battery modules
This module safely supplies power to the other modules. For safety it is short circuit protected. Battery modules can be linked together to combine voltages. Each module supplies 1.5 Volts and requires one Standard C- type battery.
2 Bulb modules
The filament light/lamp converts electrical energy into light. It contains a very thin coil of wire called a filament. This unit uses a standard low voltage miniature MES bulb.
The Buzzer module converts electrical energy into sound. It emits an audible tone when connected into a circuit. It is polarity sensitive and must be connected with the correct polarity (+/-) in order to operate. Changing the level of input Voltage produces different sound level outputs.
The Motor module converts electrical energy into motion. Its propeller rotates at a safe speed. The direction and speed of the rotation depends upon its Voltage & polarity to the Battery module. This module can be connected directly to the battery or operated with any switching module in this kit.
The Switch module enables you to ‘Open or Close’ a circuit. This type of switch is commonly used as a household light switch. It has a sturdy ‘On’ or ‘Off’ toggle action with the down position as it’s ‘On’ or closed state and the ‘UP’ position as it’s open state.
Push Switch module
The Push Switch module enables you to momentarily ‘Open or Close’ a circuit with the push of a button. When pressed the Push Switch module ‘Closes’ the circuit and when not pressed ‘Opens’ the circuit. This type of switch is commonly used in household doorbells, car horns and game controllers.
2 Crocodile adaptor clips
Included in the kit are 2 sturdy crocodile adaptor clips. These 'crocs' are perfect for use with 'Conductors & Insulators' experiments where materials can easily be held in place and tested. Each adaptor simply clips onto the end of the connecting lead.
'Excellent for experimenting which materials conduct'
Supplied in each kit are easy to use flexible connecting leads. They are easy to use for all ages and simply plug into each module. Leads can be stacked to create more advanced circuits. .

'No more fiddly wires to struggle with, simply Plug & Play'
To accompany the 'Beginners Electricity Kit' we also have a range of additional extra modules available. Each module is sold separately and is a fantastic way to design your own 'Electricity Extensions Kit'
