Books

  • Make: Electronics book written by Charles Platt. --This is a good introduction for kids in the world of electronics. Very hands on. I have purchased this and we will be looking at it together and doing some experiments.
  • Practical Electronics for Inventors 3rd Ed. Paul Scherz and Simon Monk --This looks like a good overall overview of electronics with all the formulas. It seems quite a bit more complicated than the book by Charles Platt. There is an older edition that appears to be free to download on several sites, but I am not sure if it is with permission.
