Well, after I received my package, I opened to see that everything came. But when we assembled everything together, none of the things worked! I thought it was just me, but after I tried again, it still doesn't work! I never lose the Science Fair..and this year, I had to lose because of these LED's. Well, THANKS ALOT FOR NOTHING

Sorry you had issues. These generally don't have any problems, especially all of them. I wonder if something in your system was out of spec for the LEDs. If you would like assistance, please contact our support team. Sorry they didn't work in time for your Science fair.

These work great!

I am using these for a paper electronics kit. There are some issues with making sure they connect well to the copper tape, but they are so durable and consistent as a product, I am using them anyway. Kids can make a lot of mistakes with these and still continue to reuse them. If they don't like the final product, they can take them off and use them on something else.
