Why We Do What We Do
Once curious kids ourselves, we knew it would take something special to get kids excited about learning and electronics. That’s what inspired us to invent our conductive ink pen. The pen draws in non-toxic ink made with silver. Since silver is a conductive metal, doodling with the pen is like drawing wires!
Once you’ve doodled your circuit lines, bring your electronic artwork to life with the magnetic modules. Here’s how it works:
First, place the included steel canvas behind a piece of paper, then snap on magnetic modules which connect to your drawn lines. Switch on the battery module to light up lights, run motors, power a buzzer, or connect advanced modules like transistors, potentiometers, and double switches.
There are two things we love the most about Circuit Scribe kits.
First, the act of drawing circuits by hand really connects the dots in your mind about how a circuit works and why (especially when compared with using a breadboard and jumper wires).
Second, because you’re using pen and paper, you can explore science through art. Make a connecting “wire” by drawing your name in script. Add papercraft buttons and decorations. We love art - let your creativity guide you!
Circuit Scribe is very scalable for different ages. Since the kits’ building blocks are simple, they are great for exposing elementary school students to the concepts of circuits and conductivity. Drawing a basic circuit with, say, a battery and an LED light is a great intro to electronics. (Or make our famous “high-five detector” to get an instant “aha!”)
The kits are also extensible and hit the mark with middle school and high-schoolers as well. Circuit Scribe is even used in AP Physics classes and in real-world prototyping. Break out the transistors, light sensors, and DIY connectors that come with resistors and capacitors, and you can explore advanced concepts.
Circuit Scribe even has connector modules that can bridge your drawn circuits with STEM tools like Arduinos, Makey Makeys, bread boards, or any other components that can receive a wire as an input.
Here at Circuit Scribe we’re dedicated to getting kids excited about their futures as makers, inventors, developers, scientists, artists and everything in-between. We love real science, and at the same time we think that exploring science should be artistic and fun.
