Electronics Anyone? EEME Review, Giveaway & Promo

Posted on February 25, 2013 at 7:45 AM

Hold on to your skirts and try to keep from passing out, but my co-hort Kelley has decided to grace us with her blogging voice today and I am so excited. She just couldn't keep quiet any longer.


Tina is so funny, but I have to admit that when we received the email from EEME asking if we would like to review their Genius Light Project Kit and their online courseware I was excited. I went straight to the website to check it out before I even talked to Tina about reviewing it. I signed up on the website to start viewing their free online video lessons.

I really appreciated {loved} the format of the videos. Instead of an instructor sitting there talking to you and the project sitting in front of the instructor, the camera is situated above the instructor so you are looking down at the project and only see hands and the actual project pieces being used. How smart to film it this way. 

Needless to say I was impressed enough to let Tina know fast, quick and in a hurry that I wanted to do this review. Even though my daughter is 16 and doesn't fall in the age range given on the website, I LOVE this type of project or anything else that gets into the mechanics of how something works. So I knew that this was a review for me. 

I remember in high school not being able to get my first choice of electives (Auto Shop) because that was a "Guy" class and they wanted to give all the class spaces to guys. Go figure. Thankfully I got my second choice, Drafting, which was still a "Guy" class, but they had an opening. I was one of two girls my first year and the only girl my second year. So in light of my experience I have tried to be sure that my daughter was able to try her hand at lots of different projects/subjects that in my day weren't always available. But I digress.

So what is EEME?

EEME's hands-on projects teach kids about electronics. Each project is paired with online curricula to not only guide the kids in assembling the project but also to teach the concepts applied. 

EEME has wonderful free online courseware, but what drew me in even more was the fact that there is a project kit that goes along with the video lessons. I'm a hands-on, visual learner so when a curriculum comes my way that feeds both of those I want to try it. After reading the description for the Genius Light Project Kit I could hardly wait to get started on the review.

When the Genius Light Project Kit arrived in the mail for my review I was delighted to see real electronic components. I knew that this kit combined with the online educational videos was a winner in my opinion. 

Why you receive your kit in the mail, don't be surprised to not find instructions. I know many of us as homeschool parents want instructions, but truly with the video lesson and the explanation given of not only the how to assemble, but the teaching of the concepts behind the activities, you don't need written instructions, nor do you need to be well versed in electronics. EEME has that covered for you. 

I have purchased other “electronic learning” kits in the past and was in no way as thrilled as I was when I opened up this box. This project kit is the “real deal,” not just snapping pieces together, not just reading instructions on how to put it together, but real teaching designed to help us as parents teach our kids about electronics.

The Genius Light Project Kit and the instructional videos will take you and your child through six activities. 

One of the website features I really appreciated was that if you needed to stop during the project or if you just wanted to review a part or step, they have made a “menu” of all of video segments/activities/questions. It is located to the left of the actual video lesson and looks like this.

So all you have to do is click on the video/question of your choice and you are good to go. No need to fast forward to get to the segment you need.

The age range on the website says 7 – 12 years old, but after asking my daughter her opinion of the explanations and video, she said that each step was explained very clearly and did not feel that, even at her age (16), that it was too young for her. She did have the advantage of not needing any help from me (boo-hoo) since she is older. So don’t let age or gender keep you from taking a look at the website and project kit.

Now I have to admit, I wanted to do the project myself and just skip having my daughter do it, but I made myself step back and hand it over to her to do.

My daughter set up the laptop and got right to watching the video lessons and following the instructions for the activities as she used the Genius Light Project kit,  


did I mention that there are questions/answers along the way? Love that.

After getting my daughter's thoughts on the project, I knew my first reaction was correct. EEME and the Genius Light Project Kit is a winner in my book. Between the wonderful instructional video lessons and the actual project kit itself I couldn't ask for much more from an activity to help my child learn about electronic concepts. 

If you have a child interested in robotics and want to learn a bit more about electronics I think this kit would be beneficial as well. It is a nice introduction to those foundational concepts in electronics and there is nothing like seeing the light go on, literally and figuratively, when they work through the activities. 

So can you tell that I really like {LOVE} this whole product/concept/project? I am looking forward to purchasing other project kits as they become available, of course I may get two kits so I can get in on the fun as well.
