Making

THE GOAL
To design and develop a series of open source projects and mini-projects that educators, learners, and other soft circuiteers can make and build upon.


BIG PROJECTS + CURRICULUM: BOXES
Level: Novice to Master Circuiteer
Overview:BOXES (Building Open Expandable Electronic Systems) is a workshop that introduces educators to a new approach to teaching and learning computational thinking and STEM concepts through craft. Participants collaborate to make “soft”, flexible circuits out of paper, conductive copper tape, and LEDs. Weaving traditional craft techniques with smart materials creates new points of entry that blur the boundaries between craft and computation, low and high technology, and art and computer science.

PROJECT: PAPER CARD
Level: Novice Circuiteer
Overview: In this project, you will create a switch from paper, copper tape, an LED, and a 3 volt battery.
