6th graders building name board with SSDs

The 6th grade wanted to build name boards for their class. We started by learning how a multi-meter works in order to check for the connections in the bread board and to test the SSD’s

Now the batteries were low and the children started by opening the meters and replacing the batteries.

Once the multi-meter were functional, we started to hack and learn the connections in the bread board by testing for connectivity..Then children were given each and CA(common anode) SSD and asked to bias them to find out the corresponding light settings for each segment. With the available information they gathered they had begun to build the name boards.
