Ultra Violet LED key ring light kits designed as an introduction for Key Stage 2 & 3 students to design and make in electronics.
Project notes are available as a free PDF download and are designed to be photocopied for class and teacher use. Notes include suggested lesson plans and mapping to the National Curriculum, an introduction to circuits and symbols, batteries, LEDs and pricing and costing exercises and a series of homework assignments to support work in class.
LED colour: Ultra Violet
Students start by investigating the need for security and the problems of using locks in the dark
They can then complete the design process of a mini-light, which can be attached to a key ring
With careful organisation it should be possible to manufacture the design without specialist workshop facilities
The component kits include batteries and LEDs, plastazote foam core and high impact polystyrene outer layers
