Description

Circuit Playground

Paper circuits

Circuits are the basic building block of all electronics. In this workshop you will experience a variety of means to learn and build using circuits, from paper to fabric and more. Learn how to set up a circuit playground in your own classroom or home with minimum equipment. This workshop will be hands-on.

  • Build paper circuits with copper tape

  • Work with conductive thread and wearable circuits

  • Work with LEDs, buzzers and motors.

  • See examples of projects and stations for all age groups.




The Edumaker’s Lab is a monthly series (formerly known as the Open Making Hours) where teachers students and the general education community can come and experience maker practices centered around one demo, tool, or resource, with hands-on activities and challenges designed for all ages. The Lab will take place the first Wednesday of each month from 3pm to 6pm, and will be open ended so participants can arrive at any time, preferably before 5pm, and still engage with the day’s topic, ask questions, and learn in a collaborative environment.
