Basic Electronics, available on iBooks

I am very pleased to announce that our new Basic Electronics textbook, is now available on iBooks.

We are really proud of this textbook, it’s awesome. Over to you my rhyming robot friend…

Hello it is lovely to meet you,
I am a robot and my name is Max.
I have written this electronics book just for you,
It’s packed with images, circuits and facts.
You will learn how to make real life circuits,
With the multi-touch app in this book.
I have included one in the free sample,
So you are able to take a quick look.
I really do hope you enjoy it,
If you decide you would like to take part.
I have always loved electronics,
They are literally inside my heart.

Thanks Max.

Basic Electronics has been designed to make it super easy for non-technical parents and primary school teachers to help children make electronic circuits. Having learnt the simple steps in this textbook, you will be ready to grab a kit of physical components and get making, but you won’t want to put your iPad down.

There is an interactive circuit builder that enables young children and those without the motor control accuracy to use the physical kit to get fully involved.

Max the robot narrates the sections of text at the press of a button so it is really easy for everyone to access the instructions.

We have aligned the terminology and activities with the new national curriculum for science and computing key stages 1 and 2. Too cool for school eh?

You can try before you buy with the free sample, and we'd love to hear what you think of it.

Requirements: To view Basic Electronics, you must have an iPad with iBooks 3 or later and iOS 5.1 or later, or a Mac with iBooks 1.0 or later and OS X 10.9 or later.
