Every boy likes to take things apart and most fathers are no different. Sparkle Labs of New York City brings a Father's Day gift idea that can be enjoyed by father and son (and daughter) alike. The Discovery Electronics kit allows for construction of an electronic circuit and in the process learning the fundamentals behind virtually every electronic device you come across in your daily life.

It's more than just a science lesson—these kits include all of the components necessary to construct a light-sensitive Theremin and a “dark detector” using a photosensor or work with LED lights for something visually artistic. You can even design your very own booby trap. There's always room for mischief when it comes to science.

Kits retail for less than $50 from the Sparkle Labs online store, where they will soon offer expansion sets for even more DIY fun.
