The Electronic Playground is a partially pre-wired set of low voltage circuits.  It is roughly the size of a large cigar box.  Its many labeled components include resistors, capacitors, transistors, transformers, light-emitting diodes, and more.  It is a self-contained circuit board that helps teach many of the mysteries of direct current in an engaging way. Beginning with simple explanations and wiring diagrams and proceeding from the moderate to the complex, the logic of the Electronic Playground introduces hands-on electric circuits with both predictable and surprising outcomes.  The results are immediate and exciting.  It is versatile has been successfully used at all age levels.  This session will focus on the basics of direct-current electronics and practical circuitry. Each participant will be provided with an Electronic Playground, batteries, a set of alligator clip wires, and an instruction manual for further study.
