Meet Our Partner Scrappy Circuits
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.
Michael Carroll and Chris Connors were invited by Eva Luna and Erik Herman who work with Xraise, Cornell University’s Synchrotron outreach program. The group's task was to come up with a electronics curriculum that ended in a student-build take home item that was under two dollars. Influenced by Circuit Arcade from Digital Promise and MakerEd, we filled our carts with junk from the dollar store and began experimenting. The result is Scrappy Circuits.
