Electronic, educational, tactile, visual and auditory, MY FIRST OSCILLATOR is a game for children to explore the world of sound synthesis by creating their own square wave oscillators!

The game is composed of different modules interconnectable to each other using cables, which have different colors associated with their function (power cables, signal cables, audio cables). Also the game consists of some electronic components encapsulated in jars.

The children can manipulate it and position them on the modules identifying the symbols printed on them. The idea is to introduce children to the electronics symbolic language, its components and functions. With these components children can play to change the wave's frequency emitted by the oscillators, therefore generating a sound wave and changing its sound. By interconnecting the audio outputs in the inputs of other modules, children will be able to generate different types of sound synthesis.

Accessible to families and children from 5 years old
