As you may or may not know, I recently got my 8 year old a subscription to EEME because he got into a phase of taking electronics apart and putting them back together. I wanted a safe and educational outlet for him to explore electronics, and after only two projects, I definitely think EEME is the way to go.
I've shared the Project Genius Light where he built a light that turns on when it's dark and off when it's bright! Then recently he built Project 2, which is a DIY Display that teaches about segmented LEDs. He was so engaged and interested during the process of building these projects, and I have been thoroughly satisfied with the instructional content of the online course.
So naturally I wanted to let you know that for a limited time EEME is offering my readers a FREE Light Link. The project teaches kids how to build an LED light circuit, as well as how it actually works. You receive everything you need to build the project, and simply use the online curriculum for instruction. You don't need any experience with electronics, which is what I love about the program! It's interactive and hands-on for kinesthetic learners, and the video reaches the auditory and visual learners.
This kit is normally $14.95, and you only have to pay the $5.00 for shipping and handling. I think that's a great deal to get started and see how you like the curriculum! As you know, I try to only share products and curriculum that I fully back, and this is one of them.
Use this specific link for Mom's Heart readers to get your free light link and try it out for yourself!
If you end up loving it as much as we do, come back and buy the Builder Basic 6 Project Set which has over 80 components (breadboard, baseplate, battery pack, batteries, resistors, etc) for your kiddo to build and learn how a night light, alarm and electromagnet circuit work. You'll get everything for the first six projects all at once, so you don't even have to wait month to month for your projects like we do. This would be great kit for a summer project, because the online curriculum offers a wealth of information, and kids can even experiment with building their own projects once they learn how everything works.
EEME is the real deal for an electronics course for 7-12 year old children, so I strongly encourage you to check them out. (If you choose to only do the monthly subscription, you can receive $10 off the first month by using this link, which is different than the others, so double check once you decide which purchase is best suited for your needs.)
Also, please remember, I only continue to share products and curricula that I feel comfortable backing, and EEME is a great program!
