I remember making these in Junior High and my Dad trying to explain in detail how the thing worked - make a simple electric circuit

Mini Science Projects: November 2012 The Simple Electric Circuit Kit

simple current controlled battery charger circuit using a single Darlington BJT

In this post we study the method of making 3 simple constant current battery charger circuits, first one merely utilizes a single resistor, the second desi

One of my goals as a parent is to teach my kids to build simple robots. As we develop our skills as robot designers, we will simultaneously be learning some basic electrical engineering. I’m educated as a mechanical engineering, but I can definitely see the appeal of this area of study. Projects involving batteries, switches,...Read More »
