Electricity for Boys

ByJ. S. Zerbe

Usually printed in 3 - 5 business days
Every red-blooded American boy is fascinated by electricity, dreaming of all the creatures of imagination it might be made to power - robots, vehicles, radios, toys. After a certain age (10-12 years or so), many "boy scientists" and "boy inventors" move beyond mere imaginative play to hopes of truly understanding this invisible force of nature and taming it to their own creative purposes. J.S. Zerbe's 1914 classic <i>Electricity for Boys</i> is the ideal guide for the older boy who is ready to take the next step in learning. Through a series of hands-on projects that include making a battery, voltmeter, burglar alarm, telegraph, telephone, microphone and much, much more, the author explains everything a budding boy electrician, scientist or inventor needs to know in plain language that is fully illustrated by 200 detailed, original drawings. Contains an extensive glossary defining hundreds of electrical terms.
