    Hi

    I'm a beginner at electronics. I've a aquired a "kit" with electronic components and I want tips/suggestions what fun stuff can be made with them. I would mostly like to make something that can generate sound which can be connected to a speaker but I don't know if there are enough components for this. Anyway here's the list of components (note that I've translated from another language so if something doesn't make sense please notify me):

    Please give me suggestions on fun stuff that can be made from this. :)

    Did the kit not come with a list of projects? Maybe you can find a list provided with a similar kit.

    It might be OK up to 9V or so, but at 12V or more, I agree it would be bad news. When a reversed biased LED fails, what happens? Does it fail to a short or open?

    It would fail to a short, and burnout to open when the current goes up. At least in theory :D I have not done this experiment.:D:D

    Blowing up component is part of learning :D sounds like fun to me.

    I've decided I want to make an audio oscillator. Could someone please help me find a circuit design that would be possible to make with the components I have?

    While trying to learn about LEDs, I've only burnt out 15 or so........so far.


    And, those were all the 1 Watters.:cool:
    I now know what they can handle safely.....only if they were exactly alike, which they aren't.;)

    You can use those op-amps to accomplish that.
    Also, look here.
