Overview
These ten different circuit builds demonstrate the basics of electricity flow through circuits and familiarize students with circuitry components like photoresistors, push buttons, batteries, LEDs, capacitors, and breadboards. Each build increases in complexity, and all components are reusable so that builds may be disassembled and recreated!
