Paper circuits are a great way to get started with the fundamentals of electronics. Simply speaking paper circuits are low voltage electronics circuits that one creates using a combination of paper, conductive copper tape, passive or active electronic components (resistors, LED’s, etc.) including an easy to access power source like a coin cell battery. Educators and parents alike are able to make use of paper circuits to help kids learn relevant fundamentals of electronics by engaging them in hands on activities. Kids create these circuits using the various components provided and through the making learn key concepts. Our paper circuits kits enables kids of all ages with the opportunity to explore fundamentals of electronics without having to worry about damaging expensive electronic boards or components or getting hurt. Paper circuits are a combination of electronics and art bringing together a blend of creativity, learning and experimentation.
Through the paper circuits track you will learn the absolute fundamentals of electronics, you’ll explore different electronics concepts and electronics parts in a fun manner. You’ll create electronic circuits but with a twist….you will have the opportunity to bring your creative side and turn the electronic circuit into artwork. Our paper circuits kit allows you to make simple or complex electrical circuits on a flat piece of paper. Using copper tape, LED’s, resistors and diodes you will be able to make a fully functional circuit on a flat surface, like a piece of paper and let your imagination run wild. Once you’ve created your paper circuit, paint it, stick pompoms on it, or turn it into a piece of art. You can use our paper circuits kit to create light-up greeting cards, make your origami animals come to life, or create three-dimensional pop-up paper sculpture that have working lights in them.
What projects can you do with this kit –
Here’s a list of tutorials that you can perform using this kit.
Simply LED’s – Let’s light up some art work
LED’s and Resistors – Let’s use 1 LED + 1 Resistor and Light up a child driven piece of art
Time to tango with 3 LEDs – Light up your art with different colored LED’s
Control LED brightness using resistors – Create art work and light them up using different color LED’s.
Working with LED’s in series – Light up the art work with two LED’s, same or different color.
Working with LED’s and Switches – Learn the principle of switches and LED’s. Control when the art work lights up.
