What Will You Learn?
In this project, you’ll build light-up paper circuits, and learn how to design both series and parallel circuits, by making your own LED circuit card.
Overview: In this lesson, campers will learn to use conductive tape to build and design their own circuits. First, they’ll create and compare series and parallel circuits used to light LEDs. Then they’ll have time to design their own paper circuit or adapt a paper circuit provided as inspiration.
Introduce paper circuits as a way to design light-up projects.
Compare and contrast series and parallel circuits.
Power multiple loads using a parallel circuit.
Design, build, and troubleshoot a circuit of the camper’s own design.
