Learning with Circuit Stickers

Hello Backers!

In case you missed it, here is an archive of our Educator Innovator webinar: Hacking Your Notebook and Illuminate Your Thinking. Jennifer Dick, our collaborator and program coordinator at NEXMAP, wrote a great follow-up post on the value of adding arts to science, technology, engineering, and mathematics education (going from STEM to STEAM).

Lou Buran, a participant in our Hacking the Notebook workshop, shared Circuit Stickers both at home and in his classroom to some pretty sweet results!

“A great thing about this project,” write Lou, “is that the boys did not require my help to find success. Both the six and the ten-year-old were perfectly capable of design, implementation, and troubleshooting. Noah patiently worked on a bug for 15 minutes until he discovered that by turning the battery over, he could get his circuit to work. This led to a conversation about what he learned regarding polarity and the flow of electricity.” Here is the inspiring and adorable video of the boys’ learning and creation process.

Lou’s students also share and document their project, design and learning processes through this collaboratively written webpage of their work.

Also, Wired UK wrote a great profile of our motivation behind Circuit Stickers, to help everyone build stories using electronics!

Cheers,
Jie
