NEW PRODUCT – Easy Electronics by Charles Platt


Can we find a more concise, more colorfully illustrated handbook than Make: Easy Electronics by Charles Platt? Doubtful. We carry a number of his more advanced guidebooks, but this 50-page volume really simplifies the building blocks of maker fundamentals. The illustrations are amazing, and make it a really fun read.

Get acquainted with the basics of electronics in one fun afternoon! No tools required. Each chapter is designed as a simple experiment, so you will have a solid understanding of the ABCs of amperes, breadboards, capacitors, and more!
