The first companion pack to our popular Make: Electronics
book. It includes all components necessary to complete the experiments from the first two sections of the book (experiments 1-11.) We've spent countless hours sourcing these components — more than 250 pieces — so you don't have to waste time gathering parts and can get right to building circuits. All parts are spec'd directly from the book and author Charles Platt to ensure compatibility. Most of the parts included are reused throughout the book and can be re-purposed for use in future projects. See below for the long list of contents. Radio Shack version.
Make sure to add the Make: Electronics book (listed on this page as an accessory) with the components pack to save $24.99.
Don't have all the tools for the job? Make sure to pick up our companion toolkit. And if you're ready for experiments 12+, don't forget Make: Electronics Components Pack 2.
About Make: Electronics
Start working on some excellent projects as soon as you crack open this unique, hands-on book. Build the circuits first, then learn the theory behind them. With Make: Electronics, you'll learn all of the basic components and important principles through a series of "learn by discovery" experiments. And you don't need to know a thing about electricity to get started.
Get step-by-step instructions on building working devices that demonstrate fundamentals such as voltage, amperage, resistance, inductance, and capacitance. Then tackle more complex electronics concepts, including analog/digital conversion, logic gates, and integrated circuits. Along the way, you'll learn valuable tips and techniques, always with clear explanations of what you're doing and why.
