WHAT MAKES EEME...

(pronounced EE-mee)

easy

not-so-easy

  • Everything's included - parts, wires, batteries are included in all our kits
  • No experience needed - our online lessons to mentor, guide, and teach your kid
  • Safety first - no soldering required, low voltage projects
  • Challenge their mind - learn real engineering concepts
  • Challenge their hands - build using real electronics components
  • Challenge their grit - not-so-easy means much-more-rewarding when the challenge is met

About the Pushbutton LED Circuit

The switch, by default, is open, meaning no current can get through. When you push the button, the circuit closes, allowing current to pass through and light the LED.

Diagram explaining the NPN and PNP in our motor circuit

the pnps and the npns are opposite if the pnp gets power it opens and when the npn doesn't get power it opens so the switches either give power or not to the transistors

Turn On Switch - How It Works

when you turn on the switch, one part of the segmented LED turns on. the resistor is attached on the bottom bus but not shared between the pins.

How the resistor affects when the LED lights up

when we swapped the resistor, it made a difference in when the LED lit. the resistor we added is stronger then the other one so the LED stays unlit longer.

Why can't we see infrared?

we can not see infrared because that is the only type of light energy that our eyes are not sensitive to.

Introducing The Potentiometer

a potentiometer has three prongs. two are connected to the resistance part. one is connected the switch. which controls the resistance.
