Recommended Age Range: Kindergarten, Elementary, Middle School (younger kids will need adult supervision and assistance since this project uses hot glue)Time Required: ~30 minutes
Difficulty: Easy


Cost: Around $10 in used supplies (The propeller is the most expensive component. I bought 4 of the one listed below for $16 total though the price fluctuates. It was $3.10 per propeller plus around $3 shipping and handling for all 4, so there is definitely a benefit to buying in bulk. A different, less expensive propeller could be used as long as it has a 2 mm shaft hole diameter.)

The moving, rotating and lighting Mini-Brush. In OUR previous electronics projects WE were tinkering around with vibration motors and flashing LEDs, well we will continue on the same schema to get a bit more soldering practice and to discover ALSO the use of heat shrink tube, accumulators and drinking straws. This is ALSO…

Elizabeth Schaefer's curator insight, July 19, 2013 12:13 AM

Applying the skills we are trying to teach in such a manner can not only improve creativity but also provide a more thorough understanding of the content. If a student can understand how the equation is created (by making their own) they can more easily understand the deconstruction (factoring).
