A fabulous starter set for electronics with over 500 experiments. These clever snap together electronic units means no more poor connections and badly fitted components. The snap helps you know you have a guaranteed flow of current and each component is safely mounted on easy to handle pieces.

The Cambridge Brainbox 500 Secondary 2 Kit includes software to turn your computer into an oscilloscope so that you can view the wave forms produced by the circuits.
The Secondary 2 Kit covers Electrical Circuits of the Science National Curriculum at Key Stage 3 and will also be useful in supporting Design and Technology at Key Stage 3. The kit includes 4 bulbs and bulb holders so that the effect of several lamps in series or parallel can be seen. A variable resistor and a digital multi meter are also included.
The manual includes Science National Curriculum worksheets and provides details of over 500 exciting experiments.


Initially students start by revising what was covered at Key Stage 2 and then go on to explore circuits by using a multimeter to measure such things as resistance, voltage, current and the relationship between them. Students find out about the action of fuses and experiment by testing their own.

With the Cambridge Brainbox 500 Secondary 2 Kit your child will

  • Learn how to use a digital multimeter
    (provided) to measure current and voltage
  • Find out about series and parallel circuits
  • Build an AM radio
  • Use sensors to switch on and off
  • Build a rain sensor
  • Make and test fuses
  • Convert your computer into an oscilloscope

Suitable for 11 to 14 years, includes basic circuitry plus some challenging problem solving circuits. Includes booklet with over 500 experiments.

Really good. My son is 8 but he is getting on really well with this set. I was a bit worried when the box arrived at the age suggestion was 11-14 but with the instruction booklet and a little help to start with he has managed to do lots of circuits very successfully and really enjoys it.
