Hi everybody. I am interesting in teaching myself various areas of science related subjects and now wish to delve into a more sort of hands-on experience.
I have been searching around for kind of adult-orientated chemistry kits, electronics/circuits kits, etc. - anything practical so I can view things in a way that textbooks can't help with
Obviously, most things on the market are quite simple and intended for kids so I was wondering what you all may have found to be helpful in the past or even currently. price is not an issue.
Thanks so much in advance
keep in mind a raspberry pi is basically just a tiny desktop computer (it runs linux usually), while an arduino board is more of a microcontroller + usb burner + breadboard holes that you program in c (or well, the 'arduino language'). It's quite a bit more low level.
Ya, that's what I gathered so far. I'm gonna go ahead and invest in them but I also wish to gather a stronger understanding of electronics in general (without any relation to software) so will probably keep looking around for the most efficient way of doing that.
confusing as fuck without any technical background if I'm going to be honest
Kits? I'm not sure about kits. But you can buy the raw materials for some cool reactions on the web. Pretty sure you can even buy some of it on amazon.
Also, as a side note, if you're learning chemistry, I would actually recommend you buy some modelling equipment. It's really cool to see the 3-D structure of molecules, and get a grip of what breaks in a reaction, and what bonds form.
But seriously, look into buying some lab equipment, and the materials for them.
