Question:

Do I require any soldering equipment and skill to assemble the frog?

    It does require soldering equipment as you are expected to solder the components into the PCB. Full instructions are included though so it should be possible for a novice solderer.

Question:

I run an electronics challenge in July at our local school, we built 20 fm radio kit this year, with great success!! and I thought about the turning frog kit for 2013, can you send me some details of the kit please. The kit has to be built over two days and could be quite a unusual challenge. Kind regards, David Pedley

    According to the manufacturer of the kit the recommended age is 14 and upwards, however with a bit of previous soldering experience or a good adult to student ratio younger people may be able to build the kit. The circuit board is more densely populated compared to a Kitronik kit like at FM radio, but has a similar part count and complexity. The mechanical assembly is fairly straight forward, though putting the gearboxes together can be a bit fiddly. An adult with good assembly skills will build the kit in under 2 hours so it should be easily achievable by a student in 2 days.

    A selection of materials used. Most items are attached to the balsa wood plate, the pulley wheels & gears are plastic, and the motors are predominantly metal. The circuit uses a range of components, resistors, capacitors, transistors, a switch, a microphone and an IC.
