The first project was to make an extension cord. I never put two and two together that I could actually make one of these very useful pieces of technology. We made it from a thick wire, outlet box, plug and easily soldered them together!
Setting up the plug and getting ready to solder.
Another project we did was make a led flashlight. The components were perfboard, white led, AA battery pack, switch and soldered them together. It works and we will be using it in our work next month as electricity is not a constant here.
Don't try this at home kids. Trying to use our heat shrink tubing.
You can see the black spot where we fried our resistor. . . Lesson learned
These were great hands on labs that made useful tech! I'll keep you all updated with other cool projects that we do.
