Do you have a table lamp at home? Yes, the one that is useful for reading at night time. Changing lifestyle has unknowingly reduced the presence of this once upon a time useful gadget.

Parents and teachers, the presence of a reading lamp on the table was seen as a sign of someone being learned and knowledgeable, right?

Do you know how to make an LED table lamp working model yourself? Let us explain that in today’s blog. We will make a table lamp working model using Havi Elements, LED lights, and craft material.

Placing a nicely looking LED table lamp right in front of the kids on their desk will inspire them to create more. And this is a good STEM project idea for kids aged 7+.

Elements:
Power
LED

Accessories:
LED cables – 4
Power bank with USB cable

Craft material:
Project templates(Available for free download)
Rubber bands
DST
Tape

Snap the circuit: Power + LED. Tie the circuit well using rubber bands.

Step 9
Insert the circuit inside the base of the table lamp as shown.

Step 10
Connect the LED cables with the LED Element. Insert the poll into base and holder into the pole, stick them using tape. The tip of the LEDs should be placed inside the holes of the holder.

You table lamp working model is ready!

How does it work?

Similar to DIY torch, when we turn on the power element, the current passes from power to LED and the connected LEDs light up.
