these are the parts you're going to need to build your spout bot we've got lead-free solder here this is going to be used to connect our make metal connections and conduct electricity and hold our circuit together we've got some hot glue that's a hot glue stick we'll use that to hold the parts together that don't need to conduct electricity we have two resistors here these are 41 ohm resistors you can use anywhere from around 40 to 200 ohms it kind of depends on how bright you want your leds to to be in what types of LEDs you you choose we've got our LEDs here these are two water clear blue LEDs and for paper clips these are two 1.5 volt two three volt motors which work well with our batteries which happened to be 1.5 volt doublea's and together in series they are three volts then we have two bottle caps from water bottles some shrink wrap tubing and this comes in a lot of different sizes and colors we've chosen 1/16 inch and I believe 1/8 inch tubing and we've got some sliding lever switches here the I should say sliding switches these are sliding single-pole double-throw switches we've bent one of the poles out of the one of the throws out of the way so it's just a single pole single throw switch so we're going to use those as on-off switches and then we have a single pole double throw lever switches and we're going to use that but one pole in both of the throws for those and then we have wire and this is 22 gauge insulated wire we've chosen a number of different colors green blue red yellow and white and basically we chose those colors because they're going to show up better in the video when we put them on top of our battery holder and this is our double-a battery holder so those are the parts that you're going to need to build the spout bot now we're going to talk about the tools
