Please provide a digital version of Poplar Science. I am a print subscriber but I live in three places during the year (NJ, FL, MI) so they pile up.
Pop Sci ..Please Verify story just inside the cover of June 2012 issue. When I scan the QR code to learn more about this DIY project (Solar Back Yard Lights) The QR code only takes me too the Radio Shack Site...I was looking for the Plans and parts for this DIY project fo my own yard... your printed part numbers for the SUnforce 5 watt solar tricle charge need corrected to 277-112... and no radio shack part number exsists for the CDS photoresistor (PN 276-1567); please advise a valid part number for this project... Addtionally I found nothing online Electronis version for this project..
Thank you, PopSci, for listing the Columbus Idea Foundry on your map of shared workspaces in the June 2012 issue, under 'Invent Your Own Anything'.

go under hobby & do it yourself tab on radioshack.com and go to solar chargers and limit the search to sunforce and you with come upon the 5 watt solar pannel. the link to it is http://www.radioshack.com/product/index.jsp?productId=12904281&filterName=Brand&filterValue=Sunforce# and for the CDS photoresistors u have the product code wrong. It's 276-1657 NOT 276-1567. I hope this helped u with your problems.
