We received the Uncle Milton's Death Star Electronics lab from the Star Wars Science line from the PR reps last week. The packaging of this set is Rogue One: A Star Wars story themed with Imperial Death Troopers, AT-ATs, and T.I.E. Fighters on the front upper right hand corner and on all three of the four sides. The front of the package has a cut out to show the Death Star electronic lab and it let's the customer know there are 20+ experiments and 70+ components. The back of the packaging gives more details about the lab such as features, what is included, what kind of batteries (AA) and how many (3), and shows the kit in it two parts the Death Star shell and the component board.

The kit includes 70+ components which include: circuit links, PCB (Printed Circuit Board) tiles, Resistors (100 ohm and 1,000 ohm), Capacitor, Switches (slide and tact), an LED, Transistor, and Phototransistor. The all of these components have a metal stripe down the middle of them and you use the circuit links to connect them. The components sit in individual spaces on the Death Star base.

The user can conduct 21 experiments that are laid out in the Activity Guide. Some of the experiments have multiple variations to boost the number to 26 outline experiments. There could be more depending on your imagination. In our demo I changed the resistor from 1,000 ohms to 100 for step 8. 

Overall this lab is very interesting, fun, and easy to use. There are plenty of experiments to conduct that will give the user (Padawan or adult) hours of entertainment and teach basic circuit board skills at the same time. The activity guide gives a clear diagram/layout and instructions for each of the experiments. It reminded me of the fun I had growing up playing with similar circuit board kits I just wish there was a Star Wars themed one back then. 

Make sure to look at our videos (there are two for this one is the unboxing and the second is a demo) and the photos of the packaging the lab components, and the Activity Guide. 

We want to thank Uncle Milton and the PR rep for sending us this great set it is greatly appreciated.
