Building a Simple Circuit

It's now time to build our first circuit.

First we are going to build a simple circuit that will make a Light Emitting Diode (LED) light up.
Remember, if we don't use a resistor in our circuit then there will be too much power for the LED and it could burn out or even POP!
Make sure that you use a resistor and that it is in the right spot.

Build the following... but remember...


Touch the negative wire to the negative side of the battery and the positive wire to the positive side of the battery.
Your LED should light up, if it doesn't then you need to troubleshoot the circuit and figure out what's wrong.
