This circuit is built using an OR logic gate, which as the name implies is true (on) if either input A or input B is true. The OR is one of seven common types of logic gates, the others being AND, NAND, NOR, XOR, XNOR, and NOT (or as most call it, an Inverter). If you build Game Show Buttons or any other Weekend Projects, be sure to send us an email with pictures and a story about your build.
