10 Breadboard Projects For Beginners


Breadboard is a great way to construct electronic projects easily and in less time without the need of soldering. A problem that is faced by beginners in the field of electronics is that they cannot solder the components neatly on printed circuit boards. One bad solder joint can lead to the project not working. When the project does not work, they eventually loose their confidence and cease to continue making projects.

This instructable gives a walkthrough of ten projects that can be made easily on a standard size breadboard thus solving the problem of hobbyists. Each projects is followed by a schematic, a breadboard layout, complete description with instructions, parts list and the difficulty level. The difficulty level increases as you make each project. Before making the projects a description of breadboard as well as electronic components is given which gives a complete understanding to beginners.


It feels good sometimes to make something apart from arduino, microcontrollers and explore the world of digital and analog circuits. All the projects do not use any microcontrollers thus making them non programmable. The parts can be easily obtained and are cheap. All the circuits were picked from internet, books and magazines but most of the projects were taken from Talking Electronics web page.

Here is a list of all the projects:

  • Musical Bell
  • IR Remote Tester
  • Static Electricity Detector
  • Ticking Bomb
  • The Fading LED
  • Light Activated LED
  • Dark Activated LED
  • LED Dimmer
  • Single Chip Electronic Dice
  • Manual Counter
