Squeezy Torch

The squeezy torch kit is an incredibly simple kit. It requires no soldering and can be built by people who have no electronics experience at all.

Once built the torch is turned on by squeezing/squashing the torch. This compresses the foam core which causes the legs of the LED to touch the battery, turning it on.

When the torch is no longer being squeezed the foam pushes the legs of the LED back away from the battery turning the torch off. 

This is a great project for teachers who want to introduce some electronics, but want to keep it simple and make sure the students take home something really useful.




 

Resources

Our aim is to support teachers with the resources needed to successfully run this unit of work in their classrooms. We provide complete kites as teaching resources are downloadable. The beauty of the Squeezy Torch project is that it can be run without expensive equipment.
