EEME Review

The science of electronics has been sadly neglected in our homeschool.

So I was very happy to be selected to review the Project Genius Light Kit from EEME.

This is the first in a series of kits, available by monthly subscription.

The suggested ages for these kits are 7-12.  My reviewers are 9, 12, and 13 years old.  

As you can see in this picture, even the 16 year old is interested in the engaging instruction videos on the EEME website.  I liked the super simple (no password) log in on the site.  The videos are free to watch, and the site is easy to navigate.  Just enter your email address here to preview the videos and see if EEME is right for your family.

My kids built the light kit project while watching the video, taking turns putting the next piece together.  

We all (even me!) learned new vocabulary words.  

We also gained an understanding of how the breadboard works and why the light does or does not light up under various circumstances.  

We broke the project up into two sessions on different days.  I loved the small bites of information that made this so easy to do!  The video clips are SHORT!  You can do as many or as few as you want in one sitting.  

This second day we worked on this, Jack was not feeling well, so he climbed up in my lap while we watched the videos and Eli did the actual work part.  

Interspersed in the video clips are some multiple choice comprehension questions.  With instant feedback, you know right away if your child is understanding the information or not.  

After you finish the lesson, you get an email asking you for feedback.
Eli enjoyed this project so much that I decided to purchase a subscription.  Subscriptions cost $18.95/month.  I emailed back and forth with customer service to make sure I could start with kit 2, and the emails were prompt and helpful.

You can connect with EEME on Facebook or Twitter.
We're very much looking forward to EEME being part of our homeschooling from now on!
