BOXES: Electricity Box Prototype

This series of images documents the electricity stage of BOXES. Using paper and tape, learners construct their first circuit for Stage 1: No Brain(er).

Materials: box, copper tape, LED, 3V battery, hot glue

The goal of this project is to introduce electrical concepts and to integrate a circuit into their box from Project 1. Guiding questions include:
- What is electricty?
- Voltage, current, resistance?
- What do we mean by path of least resistance?
- How do you construct a basic circuit?
- How can you design a circuit to fit in a box?
