"EEME's monthly hands-on project kits teach kids about electronics. Each project kit is paired with online curricula to not only teach kids how to assemble projects like lights, buzzers, and more, but to also teach them how the electronics works."
EEME is geared to 7-12 year olds and intended to teach them some basic electrical engineering concepts. Each month, for 5 months, everything you need to do the particular experiment comes right to your door. No need for any extra supplies. The first month's project is called Project Genius Light and comes with a breadboard, resistors, wires, LED and a battery.
See this little box? Yes, that was it and quite frankly, my thoughts were, well, how exciting can this possibly be?
In addition, a few days after doing this physically, we received an email with a virtual experiment doing basically the same thing. This to me was really like a test to see if my son, almost 12, a few days later, could recreate his original experiment on his own, remembering what he had learned! He did! Interestingly enough, he said he would have liked to have done the virtual one first, then the hands on one. Like the hands on one, after some of the steps there were multiple choice questions to make sure your child is understanding what they are doing. As a subscriber you will also have access to additional activities on the web site. After watching the video on a multimeter my son announced he wanted to take an electrical engineering class next year! He may be young, but he loves this stuff!
If you continue to subscribe, each month's kit will build upon the previous ones and has interactive quizzes to help with the learning application. Other projects include titles such as a DIY Display, Tentacles, Fade to Black, and tune. We are excited to continue this program and would highly recommend it!

A basic subscription is $18.95 per month for the five month project curriculum. Every month for 5 months, you'll get a new packet of electronic components with all the LED lights, resistors, wires, and more that your kid will need to build a new project.
