Paper Circuits Kits - Featuring Maker Tape!
Why mess with wires when you can just use conductive tape! Choose from our personal sized Standard Kit or our giant Classroom Set to create all kinds of electronics projects out of paper!
Designed from the ground up to be engaging for kids of all ages, our kit fits right at home at a kitchen table, workshop, or classroom. Create your own projects from scratch or use one of our many free Paper Circuits project guides or our themed eBooks. Teach the basics of electronics by using our online lessons and simple curriculum, complete with student and teacher documentation.
Take things one step further by using our amazing Maker Tape to build projects on fabric! Create simple wearables just by sticking Maker Tape onto a shirt, hat, or felt fabric sheet. Avoid the mess of conductive sewing and just stick your parts on.
Maker Tape's nylon fibers combined with conductive materials result in an amazingly strong and highly conductive tape that won't leave a mess on your next project. Maker Tape turns any surface into your next circuitry project. Use it on walls or windows, cardboard or fabric, design your own Paper Craft creation or even apply it to building bricks for use with Crazy Circuits.
Unlike other conductive tape options Maker Tape is specially designed to be Z Axis Conductive for much easier project creation. Just overlap two pieces of Maker Tape to create a solid electrical connection. Just tape down the component for a simple connection. No mess, hassle, or special tools needed.
Warning: Kit includes small parts and batteries. These are a choking hazard. Not intended for children under the age of 10.
