Grab this free booklet and make some fantastic light-up circuit cards for the holidays. This is designed as a How-To guide for students to use with support from a facilitator, educator or parent. Instructions are simplified and large graphics make it easy to follow.
Not only will students learn the basics of circuits and electronics, there is a lot of room for creativity and play.
The main project is a simple Christmas Tree Holiday Card that uses a series circuit to light up a start on top. Additional projects include a parallel circuit tree, a menorah, and a snowflake.
You'll need supplies that can be found on Amazon and ordered with Prime shipping. Projects can be made for under $1 a piece.
This project can be used with students as young as 3rd grade, with help from an adult. Many middle school students and older can complete the project independently with some adult support.
