I created a toddler controlled light switch based off of my dog controlled light switch. Some people were concerned about the safety of this switch so it no longer uses string.
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Supplies I Used
- 1/4 in. wooden poll
- 3-D printed parts
Step 2: Tools I Used
- 3D printer
Step 3: Design
Started by designing the switch plate. I started a rectangle then rounded it cut it in half and pushed it down a little. Then added hole for switch. Added screw holes. Next I added a lever to it to turn it light on and off. Then I created A sphere and pulled it up to create an oval shape cut cylinder hole through it.
Step 4: Assembly
Attach wooden polls to switch plate and handles. Screws on top of existing switch plate.
