Original ApogeeKits Electronic Kits and Others
- No Solder Kits - Electro-Mechanical Kits that Require NO Soldering
Fun and functional - for the kid in all of us! Simple electro-mechanical devices, Labs, and "dino-bots" that assemble with NO electronic soldering or gluing required. Simple household hand tools like pliers and screwdrivers are all that is required for assembly.
- Mini-Kits - Small Beginner Level Electronic Kits
Small kits but fun and functional. Small in size with low component count. Soldering is required.
- Beginner Kits - Entry Level Electronic Kits
For Students and Hobbyists who are new to the craft of electronic kit building. Relatively low component count means the kit can be assembled in a short amount of time. Soldering is required.
- Intermediate Skill Level Electronic Kits
Assumes that the electronic kit builder has some experience with soldering and component identification, and can follow more complex instructions. Relatively higher component count. Kit can usually be assembled in a single evening.
- Advanced Skill Level Electronic Kits
Assumes that the electronic kit builder has very good soldering skills, with appropriate tools for the job. Kit builder has excellent component identification skills and/or can safely assume the risks of exposure to AC Line Voltage levels. High component count could take longer to assemble.
