diy projects that move, wiggle and light up!

for 4th-6th grades

For Summer 2022, we’ve taken our favorite light-up projects from past summers and added some bright, new ones to bring you Light It Up!

This class teaches young makers how to design simple circuits with light-up elements and incorporate them into creative projects. Campers use accessible yet remarkable materials (copper tape is a favorite!) to engineer their creations.

Projects include light-up Zodiac Star Maps, Quiz Boards, LED Cards, Felted Light-up Cuff, and blinking Twirly Copters. Plus – a Drawbot that wiggles and spins, and a DIY Operation Game that lights-up *and* buzzes!
