    In depth explanations

    The instructions were easy to follow so my daughter was able to do it all alone yet still felt challenged. So awesome that she was able to build an electronic from scratch and learned a variety of different skills. She was genuinely amazed at the end result. The completed project is now used as a lamp on her night stand!

    Tinkering time

    This project was so interesting and unique. My daughter loved figuiring out the circuits and mixing different colors when she was done. I love that she's learning about circuits and the physics of color all in one project.

    Build a working circuit

    My son loved the engineering and building of each item. It was a beginning to learning about electricity with the added excitement of mixing and blending colors. It required attention to detail because the wires had to be properly plaed but the reward was super high when the colors came out as intended!

    Kids learned some basics of electricity: flow, open and closed circuits, and resistance.

    It was a nice visual project that allowed the kids to learn some basics of electricity: flow, open and closed circuits, and resistance. It also allowed me to introduce them to RGB and I was able to show them pixels in an old TV and show them how three colors made up the entire picture they see. It also illustrated the RGB color settings that they have seen in some art programs on their laptops. Before it really had little meaning other than random numbers that changed the color. Now they have a firm understanding of what is happening there.

    Son was excited to use wires and electricity to build the crate.

    It was simple enough that he could do most of it by himself, but did it with his dad to make sure it was right. This is one he was proud of when he made it and even took it to show and tell at school and called his Grandma on Skype to show it off. Something about making things with wire and electricity really got him excited and he was proud that he was able to do it.

    Granddaughter loved the construction process and combining the different colors.

    the granddaughter loved the process of construction and combining the different colors to learn about what makes white light. she was extremely proud of the finished product, as well.
