I’m all for spreading more light, art, and paper circuits in the world!
Check out this excellent paper circuit kickstarter from David Cole and Nexmap!
I first learned about the Hack Your Notebook project from the National Writing Project during my first year of librarianship. I wanted to find a good way to teach my students about paper circuits and I found a free “Hack your notebook” online from Nexmap and NWP. That was a great way to start learning about paper circuits. This new sharing from Nexmap promises to be another great resource for educators that want to blend making and writing. Plus, the four books that accompany this Kickstarter are written by some amazing maker educators!
From the Kickstarter:
“BOOKS 1 – 4 : Paper Circuitry & LEDs, Pop-up, Microcontrollers, Servos
We’ve co-authored each booklet with a brilliant artist/engineer. Jie Qi, co-founder and creative director of Chibitronics. Susan Lowdermilk book artist, pop-up specialist, and design instructor. Natalie Freed, a computational craftsperson and CS instructor, and Jeannine Huffman, a STEM and engineering educator passionate about creating low-cost introductory robotics experiences.”

Note: This is NOT a sponsored post. I am sharing because I know these educators and this looks like a stellar resource!
