We have three kits to choose from:
Learn about 5 different mechanical switches and then design your own! There are hundreds of switches in the world, but why? Did you know that switches can act as sensors? The sparking sense set has our favorite sensing switches and we walk you through how to build gadgets with each one.
Sparking sense includes: 2 LEDs, 1 Teknikio battery board, 1 battery, 4 alligator clips, 1 lever switch, 1 tilt switch, 1 push button switch, 1 rocker switch, 1 reed switch, 1 cardboard model, 1 piece conductive tape, & 1 buzzer. Skills: mechanics, circuits, design thinking.
By adding simple circuits to paper sculptures you can instantly animate them and create unique sculptures. You can start simple and add a light or two and then make more complex modular systems with your origami robot sculpture. You can also add a small motor and seen how it effects the movement of the sculpture based on where you attach it.
Each Activating Oragami Set includes: 1 Teknikio motionboard, 1 Teknikio battery board, 2 batteries, 4 LED lights, 10 fasteners, 1 piece of conductive tape, &1 origami paper pack. Skills: paper folding, mechanics, circuits.
