This project introduces latching circuits and also other important concepts including different ways of triggering and resetting circuits. There are a number of possible outcomes for the circuit including electronic alarms, an electronic money box, a target game and a steady-hand game. A training system, 70-6036, is also available for use alongside this project to assist students with making important design decisions.

Comprehensive teacher notes are available here.
