    I hope these videos keep coming. I emailed to my 9 year old son who immediately started trying to make a resistor from all the parts of broken toys he has been saving. It is great to see something so “mysterious” broken down and made simple.

    Just found the one on LEDs and I can’t wait to see where that takes him.
