The Circuit Scribe Basic kit has to be one of the most intriguing STEM toys that my girls and I have tried. We were in awe of the idea the the ink from the pen could conduct the flow of electricity. This Circuit Scribe Basic kit lets you plan your electrical circuit on paper and then build it with the included components.
The Draw Your Own Circuits book gave step-by-step directions to create circuits, shorts, see what is a good conductor all while getting creative and having fun.
My daughters and I started basic. The directions are easy to follow. We found it helpful draw a filled in circle before putting the magnetic components on so that it became easy to connect and let the electricity flow.
We continue to experiement with the components and on the next page we tried to short the battery.
I love that the directions also helped the girls learn science content. When in school, my girls use a Maker Space to discover and create. The Circuit Scribe supports the idea of project based learning. I also liked seeing my girls work together in a trial and error style to see what they need to
After learning the basics, we started turing STEM into STEAM by adding an artistic touch. I showed them that if I wrote my Twitter Handle, SavvyMomNYC in cursive with the pen, we could still create a circuit.
Watch how you can get creative with your circuit.
Once you have reviewed and practiced your circuit creation, it is time to experiment and design on your own. I gave the girls white paper and said try it out. My 11 year old came up with this idea.
The Circuit Scribe Basic Kit helps you learn elementary electrical concepts an in simple way. Draw and create!
