Circuit Scribe is the silver lining to enticing kids to embrace stem topics like electronics.
Just about everything you touch during the day involves electronics – turning on the lamp, microwaving popcorn or driving the car! If you peered deep inside any electronic appliance you’d discover they all start with a single circuit, linked to another and another. A new company, Circuit Scribe, has invented a remarkable pen that writes with conductive silver ink to create a working circuit. Now novice third graders and experienced high schoolers can have fun with circuitry and electronics in a totally new way. All they need is a piece of paper and a Circuit Scribe pen!
Imagine sitting in study hall and creating a paper city. Students can now build and light up houses, create a pressure sensitive driveway or a street lamp circuit! Science, technology, engineering and math all combine as youngsters draw lines with their easy-to-use Circuit Scribe!
Circuit Scribe will give my niece hands on learning about Science.
I recently took one of my nieces to the local Science Center. One of the exhibits she enjoyed was the circuit board they had. This is the perfect thing to have at home to play with and enjoy!
Some children learn better with hands on experimenting and this is where Circuit Scribe comes in. This is also a great product for Home Schooling.
As an adult I even had fun with this. It’s very easy to use and I liked seeing my simple design light up. There are different kits you can buy:
Basic Kit • from $44.99
Maker Kit • $79.99
Ultimate Kit • $99.99
Circuit Scribe Pen • $19.99
Mini Kit • $9.99
For the purpose of my review I received the Ultimate Kit. The kit features 10 magnetic connection cables that allow kids to hook up paper circuits to programmable platforms like Arduino. With the Ultimate Kit, young scientists can make complex, robust circuits while still using our accessible Circuit Scribe technology. Blinker, buzzer, light sensor, NPN transistor and two DPDT switches are just a sampling of what’s in the ultimate box!
Any of these kits would make a great gift this holiday season. Until November 21st you can save 15% off of anything on the site using the code LIBRARY15.
