The Boy Electrician

One of the coolest books ever! Far more interesting than watching television. Originally published in 1913, and reprinted by Lindsay Publications.
Softcover, 403 pages, filled with beautiful ink drawings on every page. The book presents a great science curriculum on magnetism, electricity, and radio, but instead of dry technical discussions, EVERY TOPIC includes easy experiments to perform and clear illustrations. The projects are suitable for adults, too, and of course girls!

But please, kids MUST do these experiments with adult supervision! Safety standards were not good in 1913, and some of these experiments can be dangerous...for example the homemade X-ray machine!

The illustrations above show typical projects from the electric motor and a sensitive microphone. Besides explaining the material simply and concisely, the projects are a bunch of fun! BLOW UP YOUR TV and give your kids this book instead!

Subjects covered include magnets and magnetism, static electricity (plans for a Wimshurst machine!), building batteries from scratch, electromagnetism
and induction, wiring, meters, bells and alarms, telegraphs, microphones and telephones, building induction coils and transformers, radio transmitters and receivers, electric motors, generators (dynamos!), lighting, building model trains...and there are many simple projects to build in each category.

Everything in here is built from scratch! We recommend it highly.
