Getting Started with Circuit Scribe
So you have a Circuit Scribe kit and you’re ready to get started.
Here comes the fun part!
Here's a quick look at how to draw your first circuit:
- Use the stencil to draw dots that the modules' feet will fit onto. (They're magnetic and snap to the steel sheet behind your paper for a good strong connection.)
2. For this simple circuit, draw two pairs of dots.
3. Connect the dots with lines like so.
4. Connect a battery module to one pair of feet and turn it on (if the module is connected correctly, the blue indicator will light up).
5. Connect the LED module to the other pair of feet.
Congratulations, you've drawn your first circuit!

As you’re discovering circuits by using our conductive ink pen, what do you do if the lights don’t light, the motors don’t turn, and … nothing happens? To be honest, we love the fact that Circuit Scribe teaches kids to troubleshoot. Failure is good!
