Make: Electronics Components Pack 1 is 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.

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.

Great pack! Paid for convenience and got it! January 25, 2014
Reviewer: Electronics Fan from Portland, OR United States  
This pack is great. Other reviewers have said it's too expensive, but if you collected all these pieces on your own, you'd only save about $50...not including shipping or the time spent putting it together. I learned this by trying to put my own together.

Using the breadboard can be boring, no question. That is nature of breadboards. It helped us learn and we still use it to figure out problems if we just can't figure something out, but it's a last resort.

This is a great set for beginners, and if you get it with the book, everything matches up nicely. My sons and I (8 & 11) had a great time building the projects in the book and the 11-year-old picked it up amazingly well.

So did I! I was concerned that I would be left in the dust by his math brain, but it all made sense. We've done a lot more since then too. This is definitely a "gateway set" so be careful. :)

Too Expensive July 28, 2013
Reviewer: Ammar from MI, United States  
The breadboard it has is horrible. It bored me to death trying to stick those capacitors and diodes to the tiny holes. Also the alligator clips were bad and hard to use. This pack is too expensive and has poor quality components, at least they are not what I expected.
