This STEM project teaches kids about circuits and electricity. Because there are tiny parts, I recommend it for ages 10 and older. This coincides nicely with 5th grade Core Curriculum circuits as well.
There are a few hurdles for doing this project. To make it easier for my readers to do this science project, I’m giving away some kits of the harder to procure parts. See the Rafflecopter below to win.
This Paper Circuit STEM project is also in Make: Start Making! A Guide to Engaging Young People in Maker Activities by Danielle Martin and Alisha Panjwani. I’m also giving away a copy of this book. To win this book, please leave a comment.
Step 1: The Materials
Some of the materials you’ll probably have around the house: clear tape, scissors, paper/card stock/construction paper (card stock is best), and binder clip (nice to have but not necessary).
