This is the simplest motor kit that could be assembled in 30 minutes!
Despite its simplicity it is a perfect learning tool to make first steps into wonderful world of electricity and magnetism.
Efficient design (rotational speed up to 2100 RPM) guarantees this motor to work every time.
Lots of fun for years!
Same as Kit #11 with additional features:
In addition to all features of a basic motor this kit includes extra parts:
Lots of experimentation possibilities!
Same as Kit #13 with additional features:

Original reed switch motor – our most popular kit in 1999-2013!
Allows to experiment with 4 different voltages: 1.5, 3, 4.5 and 6 Volts.
Speeds up to 3000 RPM.
Reed switch motor with transistor control which increases the life of the reed switch.
Easy to build, but requires some soldering.
Motor using Hall Effect IC as a sensor. This is our simple version of common industrial brushless motor.
It is fast, quiet, and the most reliable motor that can work for years!
Motor using optical interrupter as a sensor.
This is quiet, reliable but a little slower motor (typical speed up to 2000 RPM).
This is our version of well known simple motor that provides the ability to do some experiments with it.
Another version of simple motor with rotating coil in the magnetic field designed for these experiments:
No messy glue. No tools required.
Simple brushed conventional motor for only $3.99 each!
Sold in classroom sets of 10.
Buy 2 sets or more and get free RPM measurement attachment – your students will be able to compare the speed of their motors.
Buy 4 sets and get in addition free Rapid Assembly QuikLock Kit #12!
Simple inexpensive attachment for measuring the speed of any conventional motor where the wire coil rotates in the static magnetic field.
Highly recommended for groups of students – they love to compare their motors!
Connects to frequency meter; if you do not have one you may consider RPM Measurement Kit #2.
All-in-one kits include all parts required for assembly of 4 brushless motors:
With easier Kit #8 you can build one motor at a time.
Kit #9 (shown above) allows for easy switching between different motor configurations. It is an advanced kit.
Most electric motors built from our kits are powerful enough to rotate precision industrial motor which can generate enough power to light up a super bright LED.
Adding a simple generator to your motor is the best way to demonstrate how electrical energy is converted to mechanical energy, and then back to electrical power.
It is also a helpful tool to measure and calculate torque and efficiency of your motor.
If you are looking for a renewable energy project – solar power module is a perfect addition to your motor kit!
This powerful 1.6 W solar panel could be added to motor kits #1-9, 13-14.
It provides enough power for the motors to work under direct sunlight. Solar panel can also recharge the batteries.
This kit adds a main power switch.
Advanced multimeter and assembled attachment for real time motor speed measurement.
It works on all brushless motors available at our site.
The RPM measurement tool is based on frequency measurement. If you already have a multimeter that can measure the frequency in Hz you might be interested in inexpensive standalone RPM measurement attachment.
