Mand Labs Premium Kit
Targeted toward complete beginners, Mand Labs Premium Kit uses 165 industrial-grade electronic components and tools, two guidebooks, 9 hours of online discussions and step-by-step, app-based instructions to encourage your teen to learn at his own pace. Mand Labs Premium Kit is both impressive and maybe a tad bit intimidating. Yet the 57 electronic project instructions are tested by 20,000 users to ensure that they are intuitive and easy to use. The Mand Labs Premium Kit’s award-winning carrying case opens up vertically into a workstation lab with multiple drawers and compartments to house trays of components, tools, and manuals. Designed to keep the footprint area minimum, the Mand Labs Premium Kit's case has compartmentalized space within for all the parts. Indeed, one of the most robust electronics courses on the homeschool market, Mand Labs Premium Kit includes switches, circuits, wires, sensors, motors, breadboards, probes, pliers, and a multimeter and does not require any soldering tools.
For teens who find the science behind electronics overwhelming, we suggest that they merely watch videos for concepts, assembly, and reference. You will be amazed at how many electronics principles they will absorb by just assembling the projects. The guidebooks are useful for an in-depth understanding of electronics.
Mand Labs Premium Kit’s course topics cover 20 percent of IGCSE Cambridge Curriculum and 30 percent of AP Physics C, including electricity and magnetism.
From the Manufacturer:
As a beginner, you start with simple hands-on projects, pickup all the basic concepts of electricity including voltage, current, resistance, Ohm's law, Kirchhoff Laws and master the skills of using a digital multimeter.
As you advance, you start learning about new components, make more complex projects and progress both in terms of knowledge and skill levels. At the end, you will be working with sensors and transistors to build interesting projects such as IR security alarm, H-Bridge (motor driver circuit used in Robotics) and many more.
Briefly, we cover the following topics in detail: Charge, Battery, Voltage, Current, Resistance, LED, Multimeter, Resistors, Ohm's law, Series and Parallel Combination, Variable Resistors: Potentiometer, Preset and LDR, Switches, Capacitors, Relay, Semiconductors, Diode and Its Types, Digital Logic Gates: NOT, OR, AND, NOT, NAND, Zener Diode, DC Motor, Transistors, Inductors, IR (Infrared) LED, Photodiode, Temperature Sensor (Thermistor).
Our project-based learning curriculum is strongly geared towards conceptual learning of physics, electrical engineering and developing critical thinking skills. In the process, not only are you able to make projects, but also understand the science behind them using in-depth theoretical and circuit analysis, outlined clearly both in our videos and guide books.

review by So Every Day
”...well organized, tidy, clever design, thorough supply list, self-paced schedule, flexible as an add on or as a solid part of the curriculum. I’m so thankful for solid science options for a teacher like me, who fears the science at times... ”Read the Review
Our son is so excited about this kit! We love the hands on exploration that this offers.
