Reinventing Morse: Build your own Telegraph is a fun science kit designed to
excite and engage experimenters of all ages as they recreate the
experiments that lead to the development of the first successful electrical telegraph.
Build your own working telegraph with a device designed to work as
a sounder, a buzzer, or a relay Learn Morse Code and Electromagnetism.
(Classroom Set of 8)
(Refurbished with hookup or magnet wire) Audience:
Science Educators, Parents, and Students
Science Fair and Hobby Experimenters (Ages 12 and up, under adult supervision)
Assembled Kit (24 page instruction manual not shown)
Concepts Taught by this Science Kit
Electricity and Circuits (uses and effects) Magnetism / Electromagnetism How a sounder, buzzer, and relay work. Encoding messages and computer principles. Forces and Motion (strength of an electromagnet) The scientific method History of the Telegraph and Morse. Invention and the Inventive Process
Included in this kit:
Telegraph (with built in coil winding arbor) telegraph key, 2 coil bobbins, 100 feet of hookup wire, test leads, 24 page instruction manual.
List of Experiments Included in the Manual:
Your First Telegraph Encoding Messages Making a Buzzer Making a Relay (and connecting multiple sets) History of the Telegraph
are designed to align to the “National Science Educational Standards”
and “Standards for Technological Literacy.” The kits are a great way
to teach STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics)
concepts while integrating history and an appreciation of invention.
