Don't Just Build Something . . . Learn Something!
If you have a child interested in electronics and have been wondering where to begin, look no further.
LED Scope Curriculum/Course Part 1 & 2 are unique offerings. They explain not only the ‘what’ and ‘how’ of electronics, but also explains why things work. A truly complete electronics course. My sons are very different kind of learners, but both of them loved it!
LED Scope Curriculum/Course prepares students for a job or a career in electronics.
LED Scope Curriculum/Course sparked a passion in my heart of the digital world when I was younger and later it got me a job in IT.
LED Scope Curriculum/Course explains why everything works instead of just explaining that it works.
In the LED Scope Curriculum/Course, I could easily understand the function of each new component.
Did LED Scope Curriculum/Course Parts 1 and 2 in three months at age 13 with Dad’s supervising the soldering. He loved it!
Excellent product for those seeking to gain hands on experience.
He is blazing along . . . He did his first soldering today. (Of course loud cheering erupted.)
It sure has been helpful for our son. Obviously you are right on track.
I wanted to thank you for producing the LED Scope Curriculum/Course. I was absolutely thrilled to find this unique offering. It explains not only the ‘what’ and ‘how’ of electronics, but also explains why things work, and it does so in a friendly, conversational tone—it felt as if we had our own personal electronics coach standing over my shoulder. Best of all was the way the course provided meaningful hands-on activities that meshed perfectly with the text. Soldering skills, an essential skill for budding electronics enthusiasts, are also taught, making this a truly complete electronics course. The many detailed photos and illustrations provided yet another level of support. Thank you again for this fine product!
The Surface Mount Practice Kit was extremely helpful in my Electronic Construction class. It is a nice working item when done. Actually, it is not complex, one can figure out the schematic, and gives students practice in trouble shooting. Professor Pete M.My son is enrolled in a class on Electronics for Older Teen/Adults that is pure theory and calculations. It took over a month before he learned anything really new and that “new” material was some refinements about calculating power in complex circuits. So far he is holding his own – he is 13.Mother of child who did LED Scope Curriculum/Course Part 1 & Part 2 Hello, my name is James and I purchased LED Scope Curriculum/Course Parts 1 and 2. GREAT PROJECT!! I really like how in depth it is! Can’t wait for Micro computer Graphics (Part 3). James Age 13As a high school student planning to study Computer Science in college, my son enjoys the LED Scope Curriculum/Course Part 1 & 2 very much!
Home School Enrichment Magazine Review May/June 2015”About a year ago, I reviewed Part 1 of the impressive LED-Scope electronics “kit” from Learn by Doing Kits by Applied Inspirations, LLC. Now, Part 2 will help your budding young electrician delve deeper into this fascinating world! The first thing to note about Part 2 is that you will need to start with Part 1. I described that course in detail in the March/April 2014 issue of Home School Enrichment, so I won’t take time to do so again here. Suffice to say, I was highly impressed not only by the depth of information about electronics, but also the astounding clarity with which it was presented. I am happy to say that Part 2 continues this important tradition. Obviously, Part 2 picks up where Part 1 left off. You’ll be taking your new skills further with four additional modules that come together to finish the LED-Scope you began in Part 1. All the parts you’ll need are included – even some extras, in case of accidents. You’ll need the same basic tools you used in Part 1(which are available for separate purchase from Applied Inspirations). Please note that soldering is required, so you’ll also need a safe place to work. Thorough safety instructions for using a soldering iron are included. As in Part 1, the principles you’ll be learning are masterfully explained by author Peter T. Miller. I actually would not have believed that electronics could be explained so clearly! The lessons are contained on a CD in PDF format, so you can view them on a computer or print them out if you prefer. The schematics and a reference sheet are included on thick card-stock for easy benchside use. I said it when I reviewed Part 1, and I’ll say it again about Part 2: Calling these courses “kits” is an injustice to the material, as you get so much more real-world knowledge of electronics than any mere kit could provide. The sequential approach to seemingly-complicated electronics instruction is easy to follow and learn from. And make no mistake: You will learn from this course. It’s not just putting together a bunch of parts to look at some pretty lights; this is high-quality, real-world electronics knowledge. If you bought Part 1 of the LED-Scope, do yourself a favor and buy Part 2 now. And if you haven’t used either curriculum/course, and have a student interested in really learning the “nuts and bolts” of how electronics work, then go buy both Part 1 and 2 today – because having done Part 1, your student will be eager to do Part 2 as well!”
