Hydro-Powered Electric Circuit Kit

This Lewis Latimer inspired kit includes 

  • 1 - mini DC (direct current) generator
    • Voltage: 3V-12V
    • Diameter: 24 mm, Height: 22 mm
  • 2 - plastic insulated wires
  • 2 – 5 mm LED light bulb (2V, 20mA)


This project is a bit more challenging than the simple electric circuit activity. The project teaches the fundamentals of electricity and promotes sustainability, as the project is centered on using water to produce energy.
