EEME stands for Electrical Engineering Mechanical Engineering. This educational company produces online lessons for young students (ages 7-12). EEME offers a monthly subscription service for $18.95/month. Each month you receive a small box of components. Your son or daughter follow the online lessons for that project to build a fun electronic device.
The lessons are designed by a Dad engineer and they are wonderfully simple and instructive. The components are simple and easy to work with. If you have a “hands-on” learner that is intrigued by electronics you will find this a satisfying and fun resource.
My ten year old son, Owen, and I are conducting a series of reviews of EEME Projects. I observe while Owen logs in and performs each step of the online lessons which include final assembly of the monthly project.
Our first lesson: PROJECT GENIUS LIGHT!
Project Genius light included the battery pack and batteries, breadboard, 2 long wires, 2 short wires, 2 resistors, 1 photoresistor and an LED. The breadboard and battery pack are used every month. Since this was our first project Owen needed to take several introductory lessons for a total of 30 steps. The steps include short video demonstrations, multiple choice and short answer questions, and building activities. This project took Owen about 4 hours to complete.
Were instructions clear? YES
Were the components easy to identify and use? YES
Was this project fun? YES
Did you learn anything? YES
What was your favorite thing about Project Genius Light? THE PHOTORESISTOR IS COOL!
Did the online lessons and project work well together? MOST DEFINITELY
Did I have to help Owen understand the lessons or assembly? NOT ONCE
