The turning frog uses a microphone to detect and respond to noise (i.e. a clap). Running through the following steps: start, stop, turn left, stop, turn right, stop.
Full assembly instructions along with both electronic & mechanical parts are included.
Requires 2x AA batteries & 1x PP3 9V battery available separately.
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.Posted byon Wednesday, 10 December 2014

0voteA: 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.Posted byon Wednesday, 19 December 2012
0voteA: 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.Posted byon Monday, 26 March 2012
