Origami Circuits Kits
Bring your paper crafts to life with these engaging STEM kit!
By adding LEDs and self-sticking motors we're able to create 3D paper craft projects that move, light up, and blink! This is a great way to teach art, design, engineering, and basic electronics. Create your own project from scratch or use one of many free projects and templates.
These kits include everything you need to get started. Our self sticking vibrating motors are the prefect solution for any paper or cardboard based project. We include our huge 10mm Jumbo LEDs as well as naturally blinking red LEDs to help jazz up your project. Our nylon conductive Maker Tape is flexible, durable, and makes connecting components easy. Take things one step further and use Maker Tape on a shirt or fabric based project for a simple wearable project!
