STEAM LESSON: Circuits Meet Storytelling

Activate storytelling and the dramatic arts with a cool tech twist! Hi Tech Costumes fuse engineering and literacy to foster dynamic thinking and expression. Makers of all ages have a blast designing paper bag costumes enhanced with LED lights. This is a perfect project to galvanize creativity while introducing electronics in fun ways. Explore circuits, soldering and switches while sparking imaginative learning. Hi Tech Costumes are great for in-class investigation, enrichment time and DIY making. Use this project to transform reading and research, galvanize creative writing, enliven presentations and celebrate the holiday seasons.

This guide includes step-by-step instructions, supply planners, templates and standards. We’ve also included 2 switch designs - a simple paper switch and more complex hand-held switch. There’s also many resources for setting up a soldering station and adding technology to the classroom.

Ages: 3rd-8th & Adult Makers; Soldering Instructions Included.
