This is an ancillary kit for "Paper Circuits" -- a new book by Andrew Miller from Makerspaces.com!
A paper circuit is a low-voltage electronic circuit that is created on paper or cardboard using conductive copper tape, LEDs and a power source such as a coin-cell battery. Creating paper circuits is a good way to teach the basics of electricity and how circuits function. In addition to being educational, they can also be a fun makerspace project that helps to bring artwork and paper craft to life. By adding sensors, buzzers and motors to your circuit, you can also add another dimension of interactivity. These simple projects are great for all ages and all makerspaces.
- Coin-cell battery (3V) CR2032 x 10
- Copper Foil Tape with Conductive Adhesive - 6mm x 15 meter roll
- Diffused Red 5mm LED (25 pack)
Note: Copper tape can have very sharp edges and is able to cut skin like a paper cut, so be careful. Also, this project is low voltage 3V DC and is NOT intended to be used with your wall outlet or 120v. There are small items used in this project such as LEDs, which can be a choking hazard for children under 3 years. Most importantly, have fun!
