Paper Circuits Kit – II

$39.99

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. 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.

The kit DOES NOT come with a BBC micro:bit. You will need to purchase your own BBC micro:bit.

Here is a list of projects that come along with Paper Circuit Kit – II –

  1. Flashing LED’s within your artwork
  2. Flashing multiple LED’s within your artwork
  3. Flash one LED and alter brightness of the other
  4. Control brightness for both LED’s
  5. Make three LED work within your art work
  6. Learn about Boolean Logic – 2 inputs – Use micro:bit buttons select OR/AND
  7. Learn about Boolean Logic – 3 inputs – Use micro:bit buttons select OR/AND
  8. Make sounds with your paper circuit – Use micro:bit to drive a mini speaker
  9. Sound challenge – using pressure sensitive material in paper circuit, make sound change

Please Note – This kit contains small coin-cell batteries and electronic components that can be a choking hazard for kids under 3 years old. This kit is suited for kids 6+ years old.

Why Paper Circuits – 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 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.

The kit DOES NOT come with a BBC micro:bit. You will need to purchase your own BBC micro:bit.

  • Paper Circuit Kit – II builds upon the fundamentals covered on Paper Circuit Kit – I. As part of this development track kids will learn the fundamentals of programming electronic circuits using the BBC micro:bit (https://microbit.org/) and create simple but engaging circuits.  With this kit you are able to work with your child to create simple / complex electrical circuits using the materials provided and integrate them more importantly with the BBC micro:bit (https://microbit.org/).
  • Using copper tape, LED’s, resistors and diodes you will be able to create fully functional circuits on a flat surface, like a piece of paper connect them up with the BBC micro:bit (https://microbit.org/) and use the BBC micro:bit programming platform to create interesting projects. With Paper Circuit Kit – II you can build circuits that use the different sensors on board the BBC micro:bit (light sensor, speed sensors, gyro, magnetometer, temperature sensor, Bluetooth, etc.) and create fun projects that interact with the real world.

Here is a list of projects that come along with Paper Circuit Kit – II –

What is the BBC micro:bit – The BBC micro:bit (https://microbit.org/) is an open source hardware ARM-based embedded system designed by the BBC for use in computer education in the UK. It was first announced on the launch of BBC’s Make It Digital campaign on 12 March 2015 with the intent of delivering 1 million devices to pupils in the UK. The BBC micro:bit is half the size of a credit card and has an ARM Cortex-M0 processor, accelerometer and magnetometer sensors, Bluetooth and USB connectivity, a display consisting of 25 LEDs, two programmable buttons, and can be powered by either USB or an external battery pack. The device inputs and outputs are through five ring connectors that form part of a larger 23-pin edge connector. The BBC micro:bit (https://microbit.org/) allows you to program it using block based programming language, Javascript or even Python.

What does this kit come with – Paper Circuit Kit – II comes along with the following components –

  1. 8 paper circuit tutorials
  2. 19 x LED’s
  3. 3 x Diodes
  4. 2 x Resistors
  5. Copper tape for the 8 paper circuit tutorials
  6. Printed material for use with the paper circuits
  7. Links to videos and documentation for each of the tutorials to get you started

Paper Circuits Kit – II builds on the concepts introduced in Paper Circuits Kit – I and is aimed at helping kids of all ages learn the fundamentals of programming electronic circuits using the BBC micro:bit (https://microbit.org/).  With this kit you are able to work with your child to create electrical circuits using the materials provided and integrate them more importantly with the BBC micro:bit (https://microbit.org/).

Checkout the following video for examples of the types of projects one can build with Paper Circuits.

Here’s what makes our kits stand out from the rest is

  1. Eight quality designed circuits complete with copper tape, switches, LED’s, resistors, etc. everything you need to create the circuit
  2. Easy to use custom designed switches that stick straight onto the circuit
  3. Easy to use custom designed connectors and mounted components that make mounting of electronic components (LED’s, resistors, etc.) a breeze
  4. Electronic components mounted on custom designed mounts (patent pending) that make it very easy to handle and create paper circuits
  5. Our component mount address component connection reliability on paper circuits and let the kids focus on the concepts not having to worry about weak connections or joints (if created using tape)
  6. Documentation covering each of the paper circuit tutorials along with videos
  7. Structured learning tracks that cover fundamentals electronic concepts integrated with the art of making and creating
  8. Our kits encourage continuous play learning with the BBC micro:bit encouraging kits to extend their drawings into active LED displays

In addition to making use of our paper circuits kits to teach the fundamentals of electronics they can also be extended as art, craft projects. One can use these kits, in combination with other art material and fundamental electronics concepts learnt to turn ordinary everyday items into interactive gadgets e.g. turn a simple paper card into an interactive birthday card with LED’s and sound, etc.

Please Note – This kit contains small coin-cell batteries and electronic components that can be a choking hazard for kids under 3 years old. This kit is suited for kids 6+ years old.
