Abstract Optical Electronics is an exciting and growing field of electronics. This activity will look at Red Green Blue (RGB) Light Emitting Diodes (LED). Optical Electronics is a great way of combining both optics and electronics theory into a context for learning. This article outlines two practical student activities using RGB LED. It combines electronics and optical concepts that can be adapted to suit a variety of high school grades. It is also a good introduction to colour television technology and a biological understanding of the human eye and its interpretation of colour.
