How to Solder in 5 Easy Steps!
If you’re into tinkering, at some point you’ll probably find yourself needing to know how to use a soldering iron and how to solder. Maybe you’ve designed a cool little circuit using a breadboard and you’re ready to solder together the final product. Or perhaps you found a bad solder joint in a broken circuit. […]
How to Use a Multimeter: Repair a Circuit
For this month’s post, we’re going to show you how to use a multimeter. This project and all Geek Pack Hack activities must be undertaken with a suitable adult completing their own risk assessment and supervising their children at all times. We live in a world where electronics are everywhere. They connect us and work […]
How to Use a Breadboard: Make a Circuit Game
Have you ever wondered how to use a breadboard? All those rows of tiny holes… At first glance, breadboards look mildly intimidating. Fear not! They’re actually a cinch to understand. Once you see how breadboards are built, you’ll be using them to build circuits in no time. We’ll explain how to use a breadboard, and […]
How to Make an Electrical Circuit
There is something magical about building a basic electrical circuit for the first time, connecting those wires, and watching the bulb light up. It’s exciting no matter how old you are, and even preschoolers can get in on the action. Generally, the demonstration ends there. The circuit works, so it’s time to move on. For […]
