Flashlight Building (Electrical Engineering) Ages 9+

flashlightClass: Flashlight Building (Electrical Engineering) 9+ – For this hands-on outreach class at the MIT Edgerton Center. We need a Minimum of 12 students and a maximum of 24.

Description: “This activity is appropriate for students ages 9 and up. Any children under the age of 9 who attend will not be allowed to participate in soldering due to its dangerous nature.

After inspecting a “real” flashlight, students hypothesize about and draw the electrical connections in the flashlight, and what it means to have an open vs. closed circuit. Students design, build and solder their own circuit. Placing the circuit into the Flashlight casing and decorating the outside provides an exciting focus for this activity. To close the activity, students are introduced to the convention of using schematics for illustrating electrical parts.”

Travel Tips: Visitor parking in the MIT-Kresge parking lot is limited. Permits can be purchased for $26.00 by completing and submitting the PDF form at least five days in advance. The other MIT Visitors lots rates are varied. Also available is metered parking which is obviously first come first serve. I have been told that you will be ticketed if you park at a meter for more than two hours, after two hours you need to change spaces.
