What Others Are Saying About HST Electricity & Electronics for Kids
    • “I bought this kit for my sons 8th grade science fair project. He is studying the effect of the angle of the sun on solar power generation. This kit gave him the solar panels he needed for his experiments at a great price and he can do many more just for fun. (Solar Power Study Kit)”

      — Mary M.

    • “This was a big hit and I think the age range is spot on. I love how the kids get to build the little toys themselves, it helps balance out the hard problem solving coding activities with fun creative ones, and the kids enjoy adding personal touches (like turning the turtle into a cow) (Thames & Kosmos Kids First Coding & Robotics)”

      — Sandy S.

    • “My entire class enjoyed the Bristlebot Robotics Kit. The supplies were easy to handle and gave my students plenty ideas fostering their own creativity. I used it with my Physics class when we were reading the Physics of Star Wars, building their own little droids! What a great kit, suited for all levels! (Bristlebot Robotics Kit)”

      — Tamara K.

    What is electricity? And why is electricity for kids important?

    Electricity, as we think of it, comes from electromagnetic force. It's a type of energy that makes the lights in your house turn on and keeps your refrigerator running. Electrical energy (the energy that comes from electricity) does important jobs that help us cook dinner, wash clothes, or drive to the store. The car, TV, computer, air conditioner, and kitchen stove all use electricity.

    So what does electronics mean? And how does electronics for kids matter?

    Both electronics and electricity rely on electrical currents. But electronics are more sophisticated. Electronic devices are made of semi-conductors (usually silicone) and can process information. Electric devices are made of conductors (usually metal alloys) and can't process information. Cell phones are electronic devices. Light bulbs are electric.
