Portable Safety Light


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.

The Portable Safety Light project challenges students to design a stylish product using the electronics kit supplied as well as workshop materials chosen by the teacher. All students complete an identical electronics component of the project, but the real design comes in enclosing the technology in a suitable form.
