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!
Lighting Up 25 New Schools
Thanks to a £5000 grant from the IET/IMechE Engineering Education Grant Scheme, Young Engineers and Science Clubs Scotland will be offering Lighting Up Starter Kits to 25 new primary schools.
We will be running soldering CPD workshops at Dalkeith High School on Friday 6th March and at Dumfries House in Ayrshire on Wednesday 6th May.
Further details on the SCDI website.
Contact Benjie Marwick Johnstone to register your interest.
Free Top-Up Kits
Thanks to generous funding from the Institute of Physics, we once again have free top-up packs available for schools who have previously taken part in the Lighting Up project!
