To learn more about the Knob Dimmer DIY Kit, read a recent blog post here.
Following our Breadboard Basics Kit, Knob Dimmer elaborates further on breadboards as a means to conduct electronic experimentation. This lesson also serves as an introduction to resistors, the most common family of electronic components. By the time the kit is assembled, students will know how and why electricity can be moderated.
You and your students can make a circuit incorporating a potentiometer…and also a light dimmer miniature exposé!
Have you already put together our Breadboard Basics DIY Kit? Try combining the cumulative materials of both into an even more advanced circuit.
The Knob Dimmer kit is part of the Electronics and Circuitry bundle for Grades 4-5.
