Wearable Copper Circuits

Ages 8+

What Will You Learn?

How can you create a copper circuit on your arm? Check out these designs? What can you create?

You can transfer the skills you learned above to create the circuit! If you would like a reminder, here are the quick steps:

  1. One piece of copper tape creates the “positive wire”, remember to connect the long leg of the LED to the positive line, and the positive side of the battery (with a + on it) to the positive line.

  2. Another piece of copper tape, not touch the first, creates the “negative wire”. It gets the other side of the battery, and the short leg of the LED!

Adding an Accessory

Could you incorporate an object into your circuit? How would you build this? The easiest way is to make an object conductive, check out the piece of paper and then pen below.

Do you see how they work? Can you make something else conductive and combine it with your circuit?
