Starter Project EL Wire
For my starting project, I did an electroluminescent wire, also called an EL wire. An EL wire is a long thin wire that glows when an alternating current passes through it. For my project I created a connection from the transistor, the power source, to the actual wire itself. I soldered the wires together and tightened the whole connection with a heat shrink. It was a good but difficult experience, this being the first time I’ve ever soldered. It was also difficult to shrink the heat shrink, especially since I was doing it wrong at first. In the end, I finished my project without any critical errors the first time.
