If you have kids and you post about them on Facebook, you’ve probably seen the online ads for a monthly arts and craft subscription service. For a small monthly fee, the company will send you a kit including all the supplies for a few craft projects and the instructions. Simply open the box, and you’re crafting with your kid.
Now imagine that same concept, oriented around electronics instead of arts and crafts. EEME offers just that: for $18.95 a month, you’ll get all the parts for a simple, breadboard-based electronics project mailed to your home. Free video lessons are available online.
Past projects include a reed switch, lemon batteries, and an LED circuit that dims when other light sources are detected, and glows bright when the room is dark. The EEME site claims parents need no background in electronics to help their kids complete the kits — they can learn right along with their children.
