Virtual STEM Project – Introduction to Circuits: Build an LED Flashlight!

August 1

This project is intended for grades 3–8

The Ohio State University Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering is fortunate to have a STEM outreach all-star in Professor Betty Lise Anderson. Her efforts to create, supply and facilitate short, hands-on projects have exposed tens of thousands of children across the globe to the wonders of science and engineering principles to spark their understanding and interest in STEM.

While these projects are usually facilitated in person, the Ohio State Electrical Engineering/Electrical and Computer Engineering (EE/ECE) Alumni Society hosted a virtual presentation back in February that was wildly successful! Building on that success, we’d like to introduce your kids and grandkids to the basics of an electrical circuit.

During the construction of this activity, we’ll explain the underlying scientific and engineering principles in a manner that kids will understand. This event is perfect if you have children who’d be interested in a hands-on engineering project that they can do themselves.

The EE/ECE Alumni Society will work in conjunction with Professor Anderson to gather the core materials needed for this project and send them to your home. Shipping is available within the United States only.
