Step 1: Get all the materials needed
- 2 paper fastners
- 1 paperclip (preferably small)
- 1 sheet of paper (not too big,all you need is 3 cm x 1 cm) -> you can get something harder,like cardboard so the switch doesn't break like mine did the first time
- a battery (i used a 9v because that was easier for me.you can use a 3v cell battery,whatever)
Step 6: The thing that connects the 2 pins together
Step 7: Test it!
the other thumbtack touched a metal bar which was connected to the battery
because the paperclip touched only 1 thumbtack ,it wouln'd allow the electricity to traver trough it to the LED
in the 2nd pic,the paperclip touched both thumbtacks which allowed the electricity to traver trough it and get to the LED
Step 8: Finished
enjoy your homemade ON/OFF switch!
