Find all your DIY electronics in the MakerShed. 3D Printing, Kits, Arduino, Raspberry Pi, Books & more!


The Build Your Own Light Bulb Kit, from the Maker Shed, is a fun science kit designed to excite and engage experimenters of all ages. Recreate Edison’s experiments that lead to the development of the first real light bulb. The kit contains everything (except batteries) you need to build your own working light bulb using the included vacuum chamber and a number of different filament materials including carbon and tungsten.

Included in the kit:

  • Safety Vacuum Chamber
  • Hand Vacuum Pump

  • 28 page full color instruction manual

 

Maker Shed

The Maker Shed is brought to you by Maker Media, the makers of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Faire, and much more.

Launched originally as a source for back issues of MAKE Magazine, the Maker Shed expanded rapidly to meet the demand for ‘projects in a box,’ otherwise known as kits. Now we have a little bit of everything for makers, crafters, and budding scientists, from Arduinos to sock monkeys to chemistry sets .

  1. If you like the Reinventing Edison: Build your own Light Bulb science kit (proudly hand-made in the USA) then make sure to check out Harris Educational’s fan page on Facebook (http://www.facebook.com/HarrisEducational)  We are much more than just the kits, we post daily articles about science, technology, making, and education.  We have 1000′s of photographs relating to STEM (including many from Maker Faire) and regular features like the Identify-It Challenge, STEM Vocabulary Builder, and more.  

    And don’t forget our Reinventing Morse: Build your own Telegraph kit (with more designs that link invention and history to science and technology on the way).

  3. Wow. Is this the kit that Edison used to recreate/copy Swan’s work?

      1. I read that article too. Hopefully others will also, so thanks for posting the link.
