Participants will will learn how to incorporate paper circuit projects, lessons, and units into their library and/ or maker space with an understanding that paper circuits provide a low cost and low threshold entry point into making for themselves, their students, and their library. They will understand that paper circuits provide an entry point into computational thinking while supporting creativity. Participants will gain hands on experience with constructing beginner paper circuits with copper tape, LEDs, coin batteries, and circuit stickers. They will learn how to take their paper circuits activities to the next level using Circuitsketcher , Makecode, and the Chibichip by adding coding to paper circuits. Circuitsketcher is a program that allows you to map out your circuits for more complex projects then print them out or cut them from copper sheets to be added directly to your project. A Chibichip is a programmable microcontroller board that is mounted onto a clip for easy attachment to paper circuits. Attendees will be given a second hands on opportunity to add coding to their paper circuits projects, practice circuit sketcher, or to continue practicing with general paper circuits at the end of the session.
1-15 Minutes: What are paper circuits? Why use paper circuits with students? How to use paper circuits with students- projects; lessons; units Demonstration of making a simple circuit.
15-25 Minutes: Attendees will construct their own simple paper circuit
25-40 Minutes: Adding coding to paper circuits with the Chibichip and Makecode; Use of Circuitsketcher to map circuits
40-60 Minutes: Attendees experiment with paper circuits; Chbichip/ Makecode; and Circuitsketcher
