Paper Circuits as Design Tool
Design a Light Up Hoodie
Print out this template of a hoodie to use to design with lights.
Designers must decide how they want to light up the hoodie, then sketch the circuit on the back of the paper so that LEDs, battery and switch (if used) are placed appropriately.
After the circuit is drawn, it’s time to put on the copper tape, LEDs and battery and light it up!
Ask campers, “How could copper tape and LEDs be used on a real hoodie?” “How does it help to use paper circuits in the first stages of designing?
Need to light up your look in a hurry? Copper tape and LEDs on a baseball cap will do the trick!
