Ducks are very intelligent creatures! They are highly under rated. So I decided to teach my duck how to make LED circuits.
Step 1: Soldering Is the Most Difficult for Him
By far, soldering is most difficult for him. He has a tough time holding the soldering iron. Feathers are good for flying but that is it.
Step 2: Simple LED Circuits
I started him out with a simple LED circuit, 4.5 volts, 5 LEDs, three button batteries, no big deal.
Step 4: He Did Pretty Well, Considering!
He did pretty well considering, he is a duck! Ducks are very intelligent. Once he got the correct annode - cathode thing figured out , all went smoothly .
Step 5: He Even Got It to Flash and Pulse!
I was impressed, he even got the circuit to flash and pulse. Good job!
Step 6: I Then Decided to See If He Could Dremel !
I let him use my dremel tool. He took to it like a duck takes to water. (pun intended) !This is now his favorite tool!
Step 7: I Caught Him Sniffing Super Glue!
Some of his feathers were stuck together! Hey, there is no glue in this instructable!
Step 8: Time for His Reward.
Everyone deserves a reward for doing a good job. Guess what ducks crave? Duckweed in water!
Step 9: The End
