Paper Circuits Kit – I

$29.99

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.

The topics for the 8 tutorials included as part of Paper Circuit I include –

  1. Simply LED’s – Let’s light up some art work
  2. LED’s and Resistors – Let’s use 1 LED + 1 Resistor and Light up a child driven piece of art
  3. Time to tango with 3 LEDs – Light up your art with different colored LED’s
  4. Control LED brightness using resistors – Create art work and light them up using different color LED’s.
  5. Working with LED’s in series – Light up the art work with two LED’s, same or different color.
  6. Working with LED’s and Switches – Learn the principle of switches and LED’s. Control when the art work lights up.
  7. Introduction to Boolean Logic – I
  8. Introduction to Boolean Logic – II

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.

Description

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.

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 does the kit come with – Paper Circuit Kit I 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 – I is designed to help kids of all ages pickup the fundamentals of electronics by making simple electrical circuits that consists of LED’s, Resistors, Diodes, switches, etc.

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

The topics for the 8 tutorials included as part of Paper Circuit I include –

  1. Simply LED’s – Let’s light up some art work
  2. LED’s and Resistors – Let’s use 1 LED + 1 Resistor and Light up a child driven piece of art
  3. Time to tango with 3 LEDs – Light up your art with different colored LED’s
  4. Control LED brightness using resistors – Create art work and light them up using different color LED’s.
  5. Working with LED’s in series – Light up the art work with two LED’s, same or different color.
  6. Working with LED’s and Switches – Learn the principle of switches and LED’s. Control when the art work lights up.
  7. Introduction to Boolean Logic – I
  8. Introduction to Boolean Logic – II

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

  • Eight quality designed circuits complete with copper tape, switches, LED’s, resistors, etc. everything you need to create the circuit
  • Easy to use custom designed switches that stick straight onto the circuit
  • Easy to use custom designed connectors and mounted components that make mounting of electronic components (LED’s, resistors, etc.) a breeze
  • Electronic components mounted on custom designed mounts (patent pending) that make it very easy to handle and create paper circuits
  • 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)
  • Documentation covering each of the paper circuit tutorials along with videos
  • Structured learning tracks that cover fundamentals electronic concepts integrated with the art of making and creating
  • The initial tutorials are simple and designed to encourage exploration with an artistic use of the electronics (LED’s, resistors, etc.) to bring artwork (lit up paper cards, lit up animal origami figures, etc.) to life
  • Later tutorials introduce the concept of Boolean logic by first building a circuit to implement AND and OR logic, leading onto discovery by play of the underlying principle which is found in any digital device, from watches, calculators and electronic combo locks to Big Data analysis and AI

 

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. The only limit is one’s imagination.

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.
