My Students

Our school serves students in grades 7-12 and provides rigorous academics, dedicated teachers and a safe learning environment. We are part of a close-knit rural community dotted with small towns. Our school enjoys strong support from the community in academics, arts, and athletics.

The students who come to our Media Center are curious, creative, and motivated.

They are thrilled with the renovations we have done to create our makerspace, and excited about any new opportunity we can provide for them.

My Project

We are in the process of developing a Makerspace in the school Media Center. One of the stations we are excited about is making paper circuits with copper tape and LEDs. It’s not only fun to do but it’s educational. So what is a paper circuit?

A paper circuit is a low-voltage electric circuit that is created on paper or cardboard using conductive copper tape, LEDs and a power supply such as a coin-cell battery.

Student will enhance a paper project like an origami shape or greeting card with LED lights that work on a functional circuit that they create. In addition to LEDs, makers can also add switches, buzzers and motors to make their circuits more interactive.

We live in a world powered by electrical circuits. One of the best ways to learn something is to get hands-on with it. Learning by doing these projects will provide students with a foundational understanding of circuitry so they can advance to more complex electronic projects.
