What electrical projects you did as a kid help you learn and excited you?

Rustin just sent me a link with a bunch of cool projects in it ( mostly electrical). Some of them I may implement into classes. It got me thinking that I have a untapped resource for cool electric projects - you.
What projects, lessons etc. did you do as a kid that excited you to learn about electronics/electricity?


Depends on the age. If a little older, building an electric motor is pretty cool. I did a couple of those over the years.


I had a few of the radio shack boards that have all the componants on a plastic or cardboard layout and a book of projects to connect them into different things, building a AM transmitter was the one that excited me the most.
