My guide for this simple electrical project has step-by-step instructions that includes the “why’s” of what we’re building while keeping it inexpensive, simple, attainable, and beneficial.
When I started on my journey with fun electronic projects I didn’t know much beyond the basics and sometimes it’s very hard to get information that’s easy to understand when you’re first starting out. You’re new hobbyist needs something written in a way someone unfamiliar with the “lingo of the trade” can understand. I got my start by reading Hacking Electronics: An Illustrated DIY Guide for Makers and Hobbyists and I highly recommend it for anyone interested in learning simple electronics.
This project will fit in perfectly with:
- Science – discussing electrons, ions, atoms, and how electricity works
- Earth Day (April 22) – renewable energy
- History – discussing the history of how we have harnessed energy sources and the impact it has made on our societies and environment
Project Age Range: Middle School – Adult
