Product Description


From the Manufacturer
With Inventions, discover the "why" as well as the "how" common electronic components work through the use of everyday materials. Each project contributes to the understanding of how things work. The book has beautiful step-by-step, highly visual instructions and child appropriate materials, included in this kit, encourage independent learning through play, and lead a child successfully through each invention. Although Inventions is designed for children 8 years and up, this title has had an extraordinary history and following. It has been used at MIT to mentor high school students in physics. It has been used at U.C. Berkeley to mentor women in science. It has been used similarly at other institutions including Fermi Lab and the University of Texas at Austin. Inventions received a rave review from the Women's Society of the IEEE. They used Inventions for camp programs for elementary school students. The review boasted: "The projects actually WORK"....even for large groups where individualized attention is not possible. Inventions is compelling to children. Inventions is the recipient of over 15 unsolicited awards.

Consumer Evaluations


My eight year old is entering his 1st science fair, thus we have been experimenting with various potential projects. I purchased him this kit for some tips. The experiments, and our results:
1. Telegraph. This BARELY worked. By that, the paper clip telegraph clicker (which was supposed to 'tap' the head of a nail) hardly moved at all. No clicking, just a slight movement.
2. Light Flashing Generator. This appeared to be the simplest invention, and the one my son was most excited about. Even so, I was offered an incorrect part as the light bulb holder displayed in the instructions looked Absolutely nothing like the a single in the box, and there was no way to transfer electricity to it. Thus this did not function at all.
3. Radio. As with all the "inventions" I followed the directions to a tee. We spent close to an hour placing this together exactly per the instructions, and of course it did not perform. Then again, I genuinely did not assume we would make a radio out of toilet paper rolls and alumninum foil.
4. Motor. This one particular we truly got to operate, and it was rather cool. Of course we had to deviate rather a bit from the directions to get it to operate.
The instructions are sorely lacking. It is mainly photographs with instructions that state, "Create the telegraph like this" pointing to the totally built telegraph (as an instance).
If you are seeking to obtain some science experiments for your youngster, I would not recommend this at all. Instead I would go with the Mythbusters series, which essentially function.

Even though the age range for this kit is from eight to 80, I believed I'd try it for my extremely intelligent, six year old who desires to be a scientist. Probably not a excellent concept for most. ..which I learned. This kit demands a lot of fine motor skills--which most 6 year olds haven't fully acquired. I ended up getting to do most of the perform. Also, if you do finish up purchasing this, I'd recommend two things: 1)bear in mind to twist the ends of your wires. I had to uncover this on my own o( two) constantly read ahead. The directions are not written for step by step configurations. A lot more than as soon as we had to take apart something since step 2 (or three, or four, etc)told us to do a thing unexpected. Also, we could not get anything to function. . .even right after obtaining replacements.
On the vibrant side. . .My son completely loved the items that worked And even even though he couldn't do the advanced points, he was certainly able to recognize how the inventions perform. Also, when I contacted the company, they gladly sent replacements.
I would still order from this firm because their science kits offer a excellent knowledge base for kids, adults ( teachers).
