Tech Post #8: Switches

Hey guys,

Hope that everyone is having a great break. I briefly talked about my switches in my post about breadboards, but lets get more into it. I made three different switches that all work in different ways. All of the switches can be both turned one and turned off. My first one you have to push and pull horizontally to get the switch to work. My second one you have to twist to get the switch to work. My third one you have to push and pull vertically to get the switch to work. We got to make the switches with any different materials, but here is how they work. There needs to be tinfoil on at least two parts of each switch. When you push, pull, spin, throw, twist, or however your switch works these two pieces of tinfoil need to touch. When this happens the electricity runs through the switch which can allow it to complete a circuit and light something up. The switches took about two weeks to make and it was a lot of fun. Hope everyone has a good rest of the break. Bye.
