Other projects, experiments you can build with EEME

Digital camera is an IR detector

EEME makes hands-on projects to teach kids electronics. One way to learn with EEME is with our monthly hands-on electronics projects. Each month, your family receives a new electronics kit to build and learn about.

Besides the projects we define, there are actually a number of different things you can build and experiment with using the components from our projects kits. Here are a couple of suggestions (from us at EEME as well as submitted from EEME families building our monthly kits):

  1. LEGO reed switch (using LEGO pieces, magnets and Project Attraction)
  2. Lemon battery LED light circuit (using lemons and Project Genius Light)
  3. Infrared proximity sensor (using Project Tentacles and IR)
  4. Project Genius Buzzer (using Project Genius Light and Project Tentacles)
  5. Morse code generator (using Project Tentacles and Project Fade to Black)

What other project ideas can your family come up with? We’d love to know! Please submit your awesome project ideas!

EEME family builds Genius Buzzer

An EEME family recently took Project Genius Light and Project Tentacles - from EEME's monthly electronics project subscriptions - to build a Project Genius Buzzer!

Digital camera is an IR detector


Hey EEME Dad!

Here is a beeper that will sound if it is too dark and if something is too close to it.

Components Needed: 1. piezo beeper form Project Tentacles 1. 3.3k resistor from Project Tentacles and/or other resistors around 3.3k 1. 4 wires from Project Genius Light 1. Photoresistor from Project Genius Light

Concepts learned - how a piezo buzzer works - how varying the amount of resistance affects the sound of the beep. - how it is similar to an IR sensor, but with visible light instead


Totally awesome! Hope your family is inspired as we are!

How to learn with EEME

Learn with EEME's Virtual Breadboard

EEME makes hands-on projects and online lessons to teach kids electronics. Through hands-on project base learning, kids not only learn the subject at hand but they also develop a curiosity for how things in the world around them work.

Unlike most edutainment toys, each EEME project combines the entertainment of building with explicit teaching and learning.

There are predominately 2 ways to learn with EEME.


1) With our FREE interactive online lessons.

By signing up with a free account, your family can build and learn about various electronics circuits with our interactive platform.

These online lessons are the best way to get introduced to the EEME learning and building experience.

2) With our monthly hands-on project subscription.

Each month, your family will receive an electronics project kit to work on. Each project is paired with its own online curricula to not only show your family how to build the project, but also teaches them the concepts applied. Each month’s project builds in concept from the previous months’.

Our monthly projects are ideal for kids (ages 7 and up) and families who look forward to a new project to work on each month.

Sample electronics project


EEME emphasizes learning and fostering curiosity through hands-on play. In addition to our projects and lessons, we are constantly streaming educational projects and experiments to try on our blog, Facebook, and Instagram pages. So please stay connected with us!

Lastly, EEME would not be great without your support and feedback. So please provide us your thoughts and suggestions on how we can improve.

Don’t hesitate to reach out! I personally check and answer every email received.

Thanks and happy building!

How USB gets power

Digital camera is an IR detector

Ever wonder how USB devices such as your phone, GPS devices, webcams get power? Turns out it isn’t complicated at all.

Check out our video explaining more and demo'ing with a USB powering one of our EEME hands-on projects.

Digital camera to see infrared light

Project IR is one of EEME's monthly 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!

Digital camera is an IR detector

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…

LEGO Magnetic Reed Switch

An EEME kid receives a broken reed switch with his monthly EEME project. He turns a disappointing experience into an opportunity to exhibit grit, creativity and resourcefulness by creating his own LEGO reed switch. Way cool!

LEGO Reed Switch

Check out his video of what he did and how he modified the LED circuit in Project Attraction...

This kind of grit and creativity is exactly what we want to foster with our lessons and projects!

BTW - yes, we did send him a new reed switch.

How to Make a Lemon Battery

When life gives you lemons, the EEME team makes batteries! We then used the lemon batteries to power one of our hands-on projects - Project Genius Light.

Check out the video of Operation: Lemon Batteries:

If you want to build your own lemon batteries, here are the parts your need:

  • Lemons - the bigger, the juicier the better!
  • Zinc - we bought galvanized roof flashing from Home Depot and cut smaller pieces out ourselves with metal shears. You can also use galvanized nails.
  • Copper - we bought the thinnest copper rod from Home Depot in the electrical department.
  • Wires - we used 24 gauge stranded wire. Any color works. You will need wire strippers to strip the ends of the wire to expose the metal strands/core.

Lemon Battery Materials

Lemon Battery Completed

The video should show and tell what you need to do to make the batteries. We tried to keep the video short and to the point. For more information about how the electronic components and circuits work, check out our online lessons and monthly hands-on projects.

Or subscribe to our monthly hands-on project kits.

In the meantime, share this cool project with friends and family. Drop us a note if you have any questions or feedback!

Enjoy and happy building!

Building an Audio Morse Code Generator

EEME makes hands-on projects and online lessons to teach kids electronics.

With the components from our monthly subscription project kits, you can actually build electronic devices outside of what we define.

Here we’ve built a circuit which you can use to generate audio morse code - a code to transmit text with sound.

Digital camera is an IR detector

This Morse Code Generator uses the buzzer, resistor, and push button components from 2 of our monthly projects - Project Tentacles and Project Fade To Black - and is built on our breadboard and battery pack platform - all of which we provide in our monthly project kits.

Watch the short video clip below to see the circuit in action.

To learn how the breadboard and circuit works, check out our free online lessons which will allow your family to understand how this morse code generator is wired together with the breadboard.


Can you tell me the word we morse coded in the video?

If you are not a monthly subscriber, you can also build this circuit with the following components - available from a store like Radio Shack:

  1. A piezo buzzer
  2. A resistor (any value less than 5k Ohms should work)
  3. Wires
  4. A “normally-off” pushbutton
  5. A pair of AA batteries
  6. A breadboard
  7. (Optional) - battery holder

You can always subscribe to our monthly hands-on kits to save time sourcing parts and get building ASAP!

Thanks and happy building!

Teaching kids with real electronics components

EEME commits itself to teaching kids electronics with real electronic components that practicing engineers use to build circuits - not snappy toys or magnetic widgets.

Our commitment to using real electronic components is apparent in our monthly hands-on projects.

But our FREE online lessons also stay true to this commitment. Your kid virtually builds a circuit on a "real" breadboard, using "real" resistors, LEDs, capacitors, etc.. Our free online lessons parallel the handling of real electronic components in the physical world in a virtual online environment.

At the end of the day, by building with real components at an early age, we will develop our kid's:

  1. Dexterity in manipulating things carefully
  2. Confidence in knowing they are using "adult", "real" pieces
  3. Patience and grit to complete what they start
  4. Attentiveness to following instructions

... nurturing the foundation for them to invent and build the digital devices of tomorrow.
