Scrappy Circuits – Arcade of Bricks

July 1, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm PDT

The teaching and learning of invention literacy is often locked behind many pre-requisite skills and expensive STEM toys. Scrappy Circuits breaks down these barriers to learning to invent through using a modular system of bricks build by the learner and sourced for commonly found objects.

During this session we will build off of the previous blocks and create three new bricks; the Baller, Game, and Hole-In-One Bricks.

Watch and make LIVE on the Family Maker Camp FB page or on the Make: Kids Youtube channel.

Materials lists:
Baller Brick
  • straw
  • 3 small binder clips
  • 2 paper clips
  • a few pennies
  • aluminium foil
  • cardboard
Game Brick

  • paper clip
  • 2 small binder clips
  • 1 binder clip arm (you can use the arm from a different brick that doesn’t need it)
Hole-in-One Brick
  • cardboard
  • 2 paper clips
  • 2 small binder clips
