Incorporating LEGO-like approaches of using flexible building blocks to build electronic projects has made teaching electronics to K-12 students possible and fun. With step-by-step instructions and discussions, this DIY kit is an ideal STEM and makerspace material for elementary and middle school students.

Light Emitting Diodes (LEDs) are used for a variety of applications, for example, signal indicators and decorative lights. This DIY project teaches students how to use a two-transistor circuit to control LEDs in different ways. In practice, this circuit can be used to make safety signals for bicycles or night walkers, or holiday lights such as the blinking eyes of a pumpkin. The knowledge learned through this project can be easily extended to other LED circuits.
