Picture of 22 Basic Electronics Circuits Made With Electra I - Modular Electronics Education KIT

Electra I is a education KIT containing 57 modules with electronics parts. There is described more than 20 basic circuits but you get enough parts to do more. The KIT is designed to teach young people basic skills in electronics.

You don't need other parts or tools to build projects with this KIT.

The modules are made in 100 mils (2.54 mm)  grid standard and can be connected to other systems like Arduino...

KIT is powered from 2x1,5V (AA) or 9V battery.

You can build more than 20  basic circuits from our manual. From basics with LED, switches to more complicated circuits with transistors or op. amp or 555. You can try also your own circuits, you have enough parts to do hundreds of circuits.
