Grade 11–College. The Carolina™ Electronics System 1 Kit comes with 18 components, including a circuit board and all the diodes and transistors needed to investigate core concepts in introductory semiconductor electronics. Kit has enough material for 1 group of 2 to 4 students to perform the activities. Kit components come in a metal ballistics case with high-density foam inserts for easy storage and long life. Several of the parts needed but not included in this kit may be found in the Carolina™ Electricity System 1 Physics Kit (item #751167, purchased separately) and the Carolina™ Electronics System 2 Physics Kit (item #751164, purchased separately).

With this kit students can explore common experiments such as The Half-Wave Rectifier, Measuring Gain with a Power Transistor, The Infrared Diode and Phototransistor, and The Unijunction Transistor. The included experiment guide covers 12 activities:

  • The Forward Bias Diode
  • The Half-Wave Rectifier
  • The Zener Diode
  • The Transistor as a Switch
  • Measuring Gain with a PNP Power Transistor
  • The Infrared Diode and Phototransistor
  • The Light Dependent Resistor
