The students of a government sr. school, Loyati Bansur were given a wholesome experience at one of our Robosiksha Kendra where they, under the guidance of the mentor Rahul and Programme Manager – Swati Sood, built a touch button LED circuit, which was funded and supported by the Spectris Foundation and launched by India STEM Foundation. The students were enlighted to gain practical knowledge and were motivated towards learning more about STEM subjects.
About Govt Sr. Sec school Loyati Bansur
Established in 1957, Govt. Adarsh SHSS Loyati is located in the Rural area of Rajasthan state of India In the Loyati area of Bansur. block of Alwar district. The medium of instruction is Hindi language and the school is Co-educational. Currently, the school is being guided by the principal Mr. Prahalad Sahay.
About the project- Touch button LED Circuit
This project is about the working of a touch button LED circuit. In the project, students learn how a push-button controls the LED at the output, how its working makes its usage very much important in most of the systems for triggering inputs. The students will get interesting insights on circuits and this project will also heighten their curiosity on STEM subjects.
What is a touch button LED Circuit?
A push-button is a kind of circuit that works on a simple mechanism i.e “push to make”. Initially, the push-button remains in off-state which is also called a normally open state. As the button is pressed, it makes the circuit and allows the current to pass through. Normally plastic or some metals make up their bodies. It comprises four legs. As long as the button is pressed it makes the circuit and allows the current to pass through it. Whenever the button is released it breaks the circuit again. One leg of the push-button is connected with supply while the other is connected with the LED with the resistor at the output. So as the button is pressed it conducts the current which glows the LED. And as it is released it stops the supply.
Experience of students of class 9 building it
Students were thrilled to build the project and excited to get a first hand experience on the technology of today’s world. The students with the help of mentors built the touch button LED circuit and learnt some terminologies and facts related to science. The enthusiasm of the students displayed their joy of getting hands-on practical knowledge and were keen to learn more about the subject. They eagerly await for the next project!
