Building Circuits from Circuit Diagrams
In this activity you are going to bild a few circuits using a circuit diagram as your instructions.
Using a push button in a circuit:
This is a circuit diagram that includes a push button, your task is to build the circuit.
Here is what the circuit actually looks like.
Note that the push button has two pins, these pins should be in different rows on the breadboard, this is important.
In this example the pins are in row 13 and 14.
Once you've built the above circuit, be sure that it works.
The light won't go on unless the button is pressed.
This push button completes the circuit and allows electricity to flow to the LED.
Now it's time to build a few other circuits based simply on diagrams.
Build the following circuits:
