Lighting Up the Curriculum for Excellence

Inspiring the next generation of Engineers and Scientists

Products

Starter Kits

We supply starter kits with 60 of our circuits and all the necessary tools to assemble them. This includes a half day's training at one of our regular CPD workshops throughout Scotland.

A Rainbow in your Pocket

Learn how colours mix with this colour-changing rainbow.

First, watch red, green and blue cycling faster and faster until you see white! Then make all the colours of the rainbow by mixing red, green and blue in different amounts.

The Five Flashing Lights

A twinkling circuit, perfect for lighting up Christmas cards.

Mount your picture on cardboard or plywood, drill 5mm holes, put your LEDs on wires, and push them through.

The Magic Candle

A spookily realistic flickering electronic candle. In “magic” mode this circuit comes on automatically in the dark!

Perfect for Halloween inside a pumpkin lantern!

Drilled Lollipop Sticks

We supply lollipop sticks pre-drilled with a 3mm hole at either end, in boxes of 900. These are the same sticks used in Young Engineers and Science Clubs Scotland's Go Forth challenge last year, made available by popular demand!
