The Scientific Explorer Motor Boat Madness and Sonic Electronics Kit is designed to inspire young scientists to explore the world of electromagnetism and how it makes a motor function, causes a bell to make big noises, learn how a telegraph works and how to make an electric buzzer. This 3-in-1 safe and fun educational make-it-yourself kit includes a step-by-step 20-page booklet with (16) different activities that will have your “junior electrician” building a real working battery powered electric motor, electric bell, buzzer and telegraph machine. Once completed, they can enjoy putting the motorboat in the water and watch it cruise, sending Morse Code through their working telegraph, ringing their bell and buzzing their buzzer. This kit requires a “D” battery to conduct experiments.

Motor Boat Madness and Sonic Electronics is part of the exceptional series of home science kits based on the nationally recognized Great Explorations in Math and Science (GEMS) program pioneered at UC Berkley's Lawrence Hall of Science. Scientific Explorer is the industry leader in fun, educational and activity-based science kits.
