DIY Display with EEME
This month’s EEME lesson was so much fun! Mr. T is just loving the EEME project kits. The DIY Display took me back to a science kit I had when I was younger that had an LED display. Back when that was cutting edge. (I’m not telling how many years ago, let’s just go with several). It was my favorite “toy”. I think Teddy will look back at EEME and his breadboard much the same.
Disclaimer: We received EEME for review purposes and were compensated for our time. All opinions are my own and I was not required to post a positive review.
I was excited to see Mr. T remembered all the concepts he learned in our first EEME project. Then he began learning the new concepts, some of which I listed below. This course of projects really focuses on helping the kids to know what they are doing and how and why it works.
- How a segmented LED works explained then summarized
- Sharing current explained then summarized
- Turn on switch explained and summarized
Mr. J also showed Mr. T how to make the wires bend down neatly so you can see what you have done. It took him a bit long, but the fine motor work was awesome and he remained very focused the whole time. The results? Awesome.
Reviewing EEME to Cement New Concepts
One of our favorite parts of the EEME projects is the review questions throughout. Mr. T has grown to love the reviews and at the end of our projects, I have him summarize the project like he would for a science fair presentation. It helps engrain the lessons he learned through the building of the project. See how the review works in the video.
