B is for Battery – Circuit Playground

Watch more with these video collections:

We love this made-for-kids series of videos, Circuit Playgroundby MIT engineer and Adafruit Founder Limor Fried (in the pink hair) and her robot friend ADABOT. For this excellent DIY project — and to find out what’s going on inside of the batteries that you use — get some lemons, pennies, galvanized nails, some aligator clips, and an LED, then watch their second video in the series, B is for Battery.

And if you missed it, watch A is for Ampere.

This Webby award-winning video collection exists to help teachers, librarians, and families spark kid wonder and curiosity. TKSST features smarter, more meaningful content than what's usually served up by YouTube's algorithms, and amplifies the creators who make that content.

Curated, kid-friendly, independently-published. Support this mission by becoming a sustaining member today.
