Getting Started with Circuits

Breadboard are great units for making temporary circuits and prototyping, and they require absolutely no soldering. Prototyping is the process of testing out an idea by creating a preliminary model from which other forms are developed or copied, and it is one of the most common uses for breadboards. If you aren’t sure how a circuit will react under a given set of parameters, it’s best to build a prototype and test it out.

Things You Need

  • A bulb
  • Bulb holder
  • Breadboard
  • 9V Battery
  • Battery Clip

Circuitry

  • Insert the red wire of the battery into the top rail of the breadboard and black wire into the bottom rail of the breadboard as shown in the picture.

 

  • Insert the two wires of the bulb in the breadboard as shown in the picture. Insert the red wire from bulb holder into the top rail of breadboard. Insert the black wire from bulb holder into the bottom rail of breadboard.

What You Should See?

You should see the glowing bulb as soon as you made the connections. If it isn’t, then make sure you have assembled the circuit correctly.
