The Classroom Paper Circuit kit pairs art and humanity subjects with electronics. With this project, kids will learn how to add basic electronics to art materials they are already familiar with to make electronic pop-up cards, light-up notebooks and futuristic cities. Students in K-8 will be introduced to simple switches and grades 3-8 will be introduced to serial and parallel circuits.
This activity can be easily incorporated throughout the year. Paper Circuit pop-up cards are perfect for any time of year and holiday season - from Mother's Day to Halloween, the possibilities are endless.
Our science-technology-engineering-art-math (STEAM)-based kits come with everything you need to facilitate creative, hands-on electronics projects including the parts and easy to follow instructions.
If you are getting started with teaching hands-on STEAM in the classroom or in/out of school, we recommend this kit as a good way to begin or as a second project to practice concepts they have explored with other kits including simple and parallel circuits, conductive material exploration, prototyping and troubleshooting.
They will explore concepts such as:
- Simple, serial and parallel circuits
- Circuit design
- Language arts
The Paper Circuit Kit comes with:
- Lesson plans for K-2, 3-5, 6-8 aligned with Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) and Common Core State Standards (CCSS)
- Step-by-step instructions
- Light-emitting diodes (LEDs)
- Coin cell batteries
- Copper tape
- Paper Circuit Cards
- Binder clip
- Craft paper
