Our goal is simple: innovation education for all.
The Kickstarter campaign is live until April 22nd. Please click the link or picture below to check out the different reward levels; we have something for everyone.
Scrappy Circuits is an innovative and scrappy way to learn about electrical circuits for less than $1 per person.
Teachers can build class sets that kids can easily take home for around $20.
Gather 10 or 11 binder clips (usually sold as a pack of 12) and 1 LED tealight (usually 2 for a dollar at the Dollar Store).
Gather a few other household items (cardboard, 2 paper clips, aluminium foil, glue, and a marker)
Make your five Core Bricks (Battery Brick, LED Brick, Binder Clip Switch, Pressure Switch, and Dial Switch)
Experiment! Connect your Core Bricks (with alligator clips or your own Scrappy Clips) and find different ways to make the LED light up.
More! Build some of the Other Bricks and design new circuits and create some amazing inventions.
For each Scrappy Circuit set of Core Bricks you are going to need only the following:
one LED tealight (2-packs can easily be found at the dollar store)
10 or 11 small binder clips (It's easiest to buy a 12 pack)
2 paper clips
some scrap cardboard
a small amount of aluminium foil
sandpaper (dollar store nail files or emery boards work great!)
small phillips-head screwdriver (sometimes)
