Classroom Kits!

Introducing two new pledge levels! In support of educators who want to use Circuit Classics to teach hardware concepts, I’m introducing a 5-student and a 20-student classroom kit today. Each comes with boards, parts, and instructions to make it easy to discuss electronics in a classroom or workshop setting. The 20-student set includes a copy of Getting Started in Electronics as well. (And it’s still possible to add the book to any order, including the 5-student set too.)

Second, an update to pricing. I am decreasing by $5 the price of each of the three individual boards, as well as the book. I’m bringing the cost of shipping into my cost of kits in order to honor the free shipping promise while maintaining my originally-planned price numbers. New pricing is effective immediately. For those of you who already ordered any of those items and want to change to the new pricing, please email with your order number.
