It is that time of the year again when you are frantically looking for STEM gifts for your little engineers and scientists in the making: Gifts that will help them learn and play and hone their skills for a lifetime.
The market might be rife with toys and kits for children of all age groups, luring parents with educational value. But how do you choose that perfect toy with the market inundated with innumerable options? It is also pertinent to see that the toy will not gather dust long after the holiday season is over.
At Mand Labs, we are ridiculously committed to making learning fun, hands-on, and interactive. We endeavor to inspire more children into STEM and DIY electronics. So, if you are looking for a kit that can get your child started into electronics or basic circuitry, our Magic of LED kit is the perfect choice for anyone who is six years and above.
Get to know more about the Magic of LED kit before you make an informed choice:
#1 Get started into basic circuitry
Do you want to pique your little one’s interest by showing how an LED glows or how a buzzer makes a sound? You can do that and more with the do-it-yourself (DIY) projects from the kit.
The Magic of LED kit can help children understand the concepts of real-world electronics and learn the fundamentals in a fun, interactive way. The five DIY projects based on LEDs, buzzers, transistors, and capacitors will open up a whole new world of imagination and intuition for them. All they need to do is follow the step-by-step guide given along with the kit.
#2 Do an hour of electronics
Let this holiday season be a time to bond, build and learn. Using the kit, you and your little genius can do an hour of electronics. Check out what you can make together.
Glow an LED
Beep a Buzzer
Create a Flash Using a Capacitor
Automatic Night Lamp
It might take an hour or more to complete the projects in the kit, but the session will be worth it, we promise! We will be there to guide you throughout with our step-by-step manual. In case of any doubt, you can always email our engineers, who will be there to help you further.
#3 A perfect gift under $50
The best part about this kit? It makes for a perfect pocket-friendly gift that will keep on giving. Yes, get the Magic of LED kit for just $19.99. It is a limited-time offer, ending on December 24th, 11.59 PST.
So, if you have a gifting list for your little genius this holiday season, you can still accommodate the Magic of LED kit and watch your science-loving children brush up their circuitry skills.
We have limited stock, so get your kit before it’s gone!
Get hands-on and get learning
So, what are you building? How are you using your time during this global pandemic when we are all forced to stay indoors? Whether building cool projects with Mand Labs KIT-1 or getting creative with your own innovation, at Mand Labs it is our consistent effort to help the creative soul in you be a true do-it-yourself (DIY) maker.
For those of you who have completed working on the 5 projects of the standard edition here are some projects you can try out with KIT-1 Premium Edition. The projects here are more advanced and these DIY experiments will help you to keep your home secure; make use of your old batteries and help you create a circuit to make your own temperature sensor. As in the previous blog, we have simplified the building process for you through our step-by-steps. So, are you ready to learn and flaunt your creativity skills among your peers?
# IR Security Alarm
Have you ever wondered how an alarm goes off when there’s an intruder in a shop or a bank? Well, our IR security alarm project, which is based on IR sensor, will help you to understand how a simple circuit can detect any movement and trigger an alarm; thus helping us in securing our homes, banks and workplaces.
How many of you discard your old batteries thinking it is of no use? With our joule thief project you will think twice before throwing them away. Yes, the joule thief circuit will help you bring back your ‘dead’ batteries to life by boosting its energy to light up an LED. Did you know that when a battery is considered ‘dead’ it’s just that its voltage is not high enough to be used in the device directly?
When you see a 3D printer do you ever think about how the temperature is maintained in the printer? For those of you who are still wondering, thermistors are used in the hot ends of 3D printers. They monitor the heat produced and allow the printer’s control circuits to keep a constant temperature for melting the plastic filament. This project will help you to create a circuit that will let you to gauge as and when the temperature crosses the threshold limit.
Now that you know how to build your IR security alarm or your temperature sensor, why don’t you share your innovations with us? It’s simple, you can email us your projects at firstname.lastname@example.org. The best projects will not only be published here on our blogs but will also receive a surprise from us.
Get hands-on and get learning
We at Mand Labs want you to make the best use of your stay-at-home time. Whether building cool projects with Mand Labs KIT-1 or getting creative with your own innovation, we want your time to be enriched with some learning coupled with fun activities. It is our consistent effort to help the creative soul in you be a true do-it-yourself (DIY) maker.
We have compiled a list of 5 cool projects from the KIT-1’s project library for you to work on and enhance your home. All you need is a little time and effort, as the projects are simple and can be picked up by anyone with some basic interest in electrical and electronics. We have simplified the building process for you through our step-by-steps. So, go ahead and get your hands messy!
# Automatic night lamp
Have you ever given it a thought as to how the street lamps work? How the lights are turned on in the evening and how they get automatically turned off in the morning? Or for instance, did you wonder how the garden lights work? Our automatic night lamp project will not only help you to understand how the circuits work, but also help you to build your own night lamp that you can use at home when you have a power cut.
Did you ever want to play detective and catch a burglar or a thief red handed? Here’s your chance to play with circuits and create your own alarm at home. The circuit can be assembled beneath the doormat, so that the moment anyone steps on the doormat, the switch gets pressed, making the buzzer go off. So, go on and enjoy the time at home while your buzzer takes care of your home security.
When you wait at the traffic signal did you ever wonder how the red, green and yellow lights blink? Well, you can learn about it today. The alternate blinking of LEDs project can show you how relay is used as a switch. The relay, which is an electromagnetic switch, is a perfect example of how we can use electromagnetic force to control any switch.
Did you know that your body can become a part of the circuit and current can be passed through it? If you are worried that it might give you an electric shock, our touch-activated switch project will show you that you don’t have to worry about anything. Just go ahead and try it out for yourself and flaunt your creativity skill among your peers.
Were you ever fascinated by the lights on highways or in the tunnels and mines? If you were wondering on how they work, our project on LED blinker will make you understand the process and at the same time help you create an LED flasher circuit in less than an hour. Built on a logic based on the Esaki Effect, named after its inventor Leo Esaki, the project demonstrates one of the applications of the Esaki effect. Leo was awarded the Nobel prize in physics in 1973 for his discovery.
Now that you have learnt to build some really cool projects, why don’t you try out the premium projects from KIT-1? We also look forward to your innovations. Please keep them coming. It’s simple, you can email us your projects at email@example.com. The best projects will not only be published here on our blogs but will also receive a surprise from us.
