Inventing with Cardboard Circuits (HA52)

Thursday, March 5 10:30 am–12:20 pm

Pre-Registration Required (FULL)

Paper circuits are fun, but not very robust. Electronic kits are useful, but they’re pretty expensive. Cardboard circuits hit the sweet spot! Learn how to create low-cost materials that students can use to explore basic electronics, integrate into projects, and use with micro controllers such as Micro:bit, Makey Makey, Arduino, and others. Participants will leave with a basic set of materials constructed during the workshop.

Type: BYOD Workshop
Focus Area: Makerspace, STEM/STEAM, Teacher Librarian
Skill Level: All levels
BYOD Needs: No devices or software are needed for this workshop.
Note: Be sure your electronic device has a fully charged battery as only limited power sources will be available.
