Hi Can anyone point me in the right direction i'm looking for something to build with my grandson that involves soldering some basic electronics like make a light box or something along the lines of simple buzzers anything realy that i can get him involved in, maybe a small motor that that i can fit to a wooden car. But i have no idea where or what to buy here. I have basic solder skills and very good at all mechanical stuff but this has me stumped. I have looked on Maplins and at science experiments for children i was thinking along the lines of getting a piece of plywood and just soldering some on off switches to lights or buzzers to get started with him cheers all

I bought a kit from maplin to make a clock, it was a cool little project with a LCD screen to display the time, although that was a while back!

Hello,

Where are you from?
There are kits that allow experimenting with the parts you mention.
With your location , I might give you some info on the kits available in your region

I'm from the US.I don't know if they ship to whales. I like the big through hole solder pad and the spacing everything is far from each other.No solder shorts.
