DescriptionWith this kit, you can assemble an FM radio receiver that lets you scan for signals and reset the tuning using two push-button switches.
Powered by a 9V battery you supply, the two-integrated-circuit receiver has a telescopic antenna and searches for signals in the 88-108 MHz range. The detailed manual describes how to identify resistor and capacitor values and includes drawings and diagrams to clarify electronics concepts. It explains soldering techniques for connecting components, provides instructions for testing circuits and gives troubleshooting tips.
The kit includes a 25W soldering iron with a stand, 5' of 0.031" dia. lead-free solder, wire cutters, safety glasses and a printed circuit board. An engaging activity with plenty of opportunities for STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) skill building. For ages 12 and up.
