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 first hand 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 Space Ranger or super scientist! Appropriate for ages 8-12 but any fun-loving superhero nerd will enjoy making this simple circuit project.
