Hi all!

We found some helpful videos for studying DC circuits and completing the DC circuits lab in Novare Introductory Physics.

OMG - a breadboard!  brings back memories of hours spent in my parents garage with TTL chips building useless but nifty electronic thingies.

If you find it hard to keep the wires all stuck in place as your designs get big, you might consider jumping to wirewrap boards.  Just as easy to use, but they will tend to stay in place better.

ETA: 'how to use a multi-meter' is a super handy, and quite simple, household skill.  Is that battery dead?  let's check. did I flip the correct circuit breaker before replacing a light fixture? let's check.

Thanks for the multimeter use ideas! Not sure any of us will end up in the garage 😀, but the other uses you mentioned do sound handy.
