#298: Electronic Project / Experimenters Kits – Then and Now – Science Fair and Elegoo

Science Projects

In this video, we take a brief look at two Electronics Project/Experimenters kits - one from 1976, and one modern kit available today. The 150-in-1 kit was sold at Radio Shack / Tandy in the mid 1970s, and is very similar to the kit I had as a teenager. The modern kit is from Elegoo and features a MEGA2560 micro-controller (Arduino compatible / programmable) and a generous collection of parts, sensors, modules and accessories. It is really amazing what is available today. Here is a link to the MEGA2560 kit I showed in the video:
