Share |
Current AvailabilityResources | Terms



Cost: free for Supporting/$5 Geographic*
Ages: 8+

Description: A paper circuit is a low-voltage electronic circuit that is created on paper or cardboard using conductive copper tape, LEDs and a power source such as a coin-cell battery. Creating paper circuits is a good way to teach the basics of electricity and how circuits function. In addition to being educational, they can also be a fun makerspace project that helps to bring artwork and paper craft to life. By adding sensors, buzzers and motors to your circuit, you can also add another dimension of interactivity. These simple projects are great for all ages and all makerspaces.

Also included with all SWON Tech to Lend are online resources, including instructions & curriculum, which can be found through Google Drive here.
