Project IR is one of EEME's hands-on projects to teach kids about infrared (IR) light. Since we cannot see IR, Project IR builds an IR detector circuit.
But if you have not had a chance to build an EEME Project IR, no worries. Grab a digital camera or your smartphone!
This whole time, you may have thought a camera is just good for taking pictures and videos. Well turns out it can see things humans cannot!
Check out our video clip of a fun experiment to try with the family to pique their interest for physics and learning about light waves.
Word of caution and warning - if you try the experiment in the video at home - where you plug in a stripped USB wire into your computer or power adapter - you run the risk of damaging your equipment if not handled carefully.
With that said…
Have fun and happy building!
