The technology behind the crystal radio was fully developed by the turn of the last century and its simplicity enabled countless children to build their own. Now 21st century budding young engineers can try it for themselves with the Flights of Fancy Crystal Radio Kit.
An ideal science kit for enquiring minds, the Crystal Radio kit provides everything you need to make and listen to a working radio (medium wave AM channels only!) and requires no electricity or batteries - you just have to earth (ground) it to a radiator and use the other wire as an aerial.
The kit includes information so you can read all about the history of the Radio and how it works as well as easy, illustrated, instructions. Everything needed is in the box including the screwdriver! A great science set gift suitable for children aged 10 years and up and a great project to work on together as a family!
All wooden components for the Crystal Radio are sourced in the UK from FSC sources and all packaging is made from recycled materials and is recyclable making this kids science kit an environmentally sound choice too.
The Flights of Fancy completed crystal radio measures 18 by 14 by 10cm; box dimensions 15.5 x 24 x 5.5cms.
