in Meccano Hands-On! gives you the chance to have a go at building your own
electronic circuit with guidance from the Electronics in Meccano team.
The sessions consist of a half-hour lecture introducing you to some
electronics concepts, the 555 timer IC, and the practical aspects of
constructing your circuits. After the lecture you will be able to build your own 555
Monostable Circuit on a printed circuit board, thereby learning how to solder
and identify components.
Our first session on 14th June 2003 was a great success, with
several members of the West
London Meccano Society attending the lecture and 12 members taking part in the Hands-On
If you attended the lecture, you may be interested in keeping the lecture
presentation slides for reference - these can be downloaded from the link below.
No further sessions are being planned at present, but if your club is
interested in running Electronics in Meccano Hands-On! at one of your
meetings or exhibitions, please contact the Editor:
