Making A Tilt-Switch Light Lamp Afterschool

We are running two after-school classes this semester: one on circuits and the other on "Making". There is some overlap, but in the circuits session, students are learning things like how to design and mill their own circuit board, as well as how to solder. In the making class, students learn how to use all the equipment in our Lab and then are free to make. One boy is in both classes this year. He decided that he wanted to make a lamp but would create a circuit board with a tilt-switch.

First he designed and laser cut his lamp.

Then he designed and milled his circuit board.

Next he soldered all the components.

Placed the circuit board in the lamp.

He put some paper towel around the outside and a lamp was born.
