Paper Circuits are a great way to introduce kids to the world of making and electronics. A paper circuit is basically a fully functioning electronic circuit put together using a paper surface instead of a Printed Circuit board (PCB). Paper Circuits offer challenges that are at the intersection of art, making and electronics. Paper Circuit projects you might consider can range from simple greeting cards, to origami, and even possibly traditional art such as paintings or drawings. What makes Paper Circuits unique is the use of traditional art techniques to create circuits that combines simplicity, affordability, aesthetics and functionality.
