The Sir-Kit system
Designed for pupils studying GCSE physics, technology, and electronics or for people new to electronics as a hobby. The modular system of series one makes it simple to learn circuit design, and also facilitates fault finding by substitution of alternative modules. Series two kits are more complex electronic kits and each one is a complete circuit in its own right, but can also be used to extend the modular system of series one.
Each kit contains all the components, wire and solder needed to build a permanent unit using a soldering iron and basic electronics tools. Instruction, theory and project ideas are given on the information sheet in each kit. These kits are an excellent way to prototype ideas for a project for a GCSE. Just follow the instructions for connecting kits together with short lengths of wire (there are many suggestions on the sheets). Interconnections may be soldered or you can use short clip leads (see some on the series one kits page). The project ideas page has a suggested development plan for a project which you can use as a model, and it also shows which kits could be used to prototype the ideas.
When ordering remember that to build a working circuit from series one modules you will need an INPUT module, a PROCESS (or CONTROL) module and an OUTPUT module as a minimum. If you buy all the series one kits you can combine them in groups of three or more to make over 100 circuit variations. The addition of series two kits extends this still further.
