In this kit you’ll find everything you need to understand the basics of a light-sensing motor.

The Red Hat Co.Lab Light Sensing kit will help you:

  1. Learn how breadboards work through experimenting with simple circuits using a photocell and motor.

  2. Explore how to track changes in light using a sensor, and see how these changes can affect the speed of a motor.

After you’ve built your light-sensing motor, check out the Red Hat Open Source Stories film, The Science of Collective Discovery, to see how citizen scientists are ensuring a better environment for their local communities by exploring air quality and water flow with everyday objects.
