In this electronic age, circuitry is prevalent—we are surrounded by electronic devices. The LED Gauntlet is a fun project designed to introduce students to the fundamentals of circuitry and experience firsthand how electricity interacts with various materials. Discussion topics include light-emitting diodes LEDs, batteries, positive/negative current, and device terminals. The project serves as an excellent stepping stone to our more advanced circuitry projects. This kit includes a few basic craft materials and everything needed to power an LED. Once assembled, step into the shoes of a bonafide super-maker with a wearable take-home tech project.
This kit is also available in the Electronics and Circuitry Bundle for Grades 3-5, which can be viewed here.
