Resistor boards don't work - The resistor boards are make up of resistors rated for over 1000 ohms to be used with a maximum of 6 volts of battery.

How crazy is that.

Dear Valued customer, One of the activities in this kit is designed around reading the color code scheme on a resistor. To accomplish this, higher-valued resistors are used so that students can practice interpreting the meaning of the color code. The use of milliamps, due to the high resistance, helps engage the students in more complex problem solving skills, involving the conversion to Amps. Thank you for your review, your feedback is important.
