Students will have an opportunity to study simple circuitry through a hands-on, take-home project. In this activity, students create a circuit using copper tape, a coin cell battery, and LEDs. The students create the circuit on construction paper and then use them to create unique, light-up drawings.

This activity not only allows students to take home a cool physical manifestation of their work, but also allows them to bridge the divide between art and engineering.
