Electricity & Electronics Videos (49 results)

Stop for a minute and try to imagine your world without electrical power and electronic gadgets. No convenient appliances in the kitchen, no electric lights. No computers, MP3 players, television, or video games. Your life would be completely different, wouldn't it? Electricity and electronics are so central to modern life that, paradoxically, they're easy to overlook.

This video shows how to make your own strobe light using an Arduino and an LED strip. The strobe light is useful to visualize the stroboscopic effect and is much better than a strobe light app on your phone. Watch this video to learn more about the stroboscopic effect: https://youtu.be/kUUl-QcbHbA and watch this video to learn how to build your own levitating water fountain: https://youtu.be/6vWprI6OPJo. For written instructions for the Arduino strobe light, including a circuit diagram and…

Science Buddies Electronics Kit for Arduino: https://www.homesciencetools.com/product/science-buddies-electronics-kit-for-arduino/?aff=SB1 Add RGB LED lighting to your next Arduino project! This video will show you how to individually control the brightness of red, green, and blue LEDs on an analog strip so you can mix colors. Note that unlike digital strips, the LEDs on these analog strip are not individually addressable - that is a topic for a different video! See our complete playlist of…

This video shows how to build a model mass driver, also called a coilgun, controlled by an Arduino. Mass drivers could be used to launch payloads into space with electromagnets instead of chemical rockets. There are many variables you can change in your mass driver for a science or engineering project, like the power supply, coil geometry, or drive electronics. Written instructions, including a materials list, circuit diagram, and working example code are available on the Science Buddies…
