Coloring book - Lady Ada's E is for electronics

Here’s a good one, from Adafruit, for parents of budding Gadget Masters (mini-Masters?) It’s a colouring book featuring electronic components and their inventors – “Lady Ada’s E is for electronics”

“Makers of all ages can learn and colour,” say the creators in the video below (illustrations are accompanied by helpful text). L is for LED, for example:

An LED (light-emitting diode) is a special kind of diode that emits light when a current flows through it. The LED has two terminals, an anode and a cathode. Because it is a diode, electrons can only ow in one direction. When the electrons cross the barrier between the anode and the cathode, they release a photon, which produces light.

What’s nice is that you can also print it at home by downloading the PDF of the entire (26 page) colouring book.

Find it in the Young Engineer section of the Adafruit website, and check out the lots of other interesting entries there, too!

Lady Ada OGreen is certainly an important part of the palette – check out this statement on the Adafruit site:
