Circuit Scribe is a conductive ink that flows through a ballpoint pen with the same ease as regular ink. With that users can quickly and easily draw circuits that actually work, powering LEDs motors, fans, buzzers and other electronic components. With Circuit Scribe creating circuits is as easy as writing your name.
Never before has a STEM/STEAM allowed students and teachers to mix electronics and circuitry with raw creativity. In classrooms students are creating race tracks, mazes, monsters and a variety of other drawings and bringing them to life with LEDs, fans, battery packs and an assortment of other electronic parts. All the while learning the ins and outs of electricity, circuitry and basic engineering.
Even if it wasn’t intentional, CircuitScribe has taken off in elementary, middle and high schools where everyone from science teachers to art teachers, engineering classes to maker spaces have embraced CircuitScribe because it’s fun, educational and creative. Students far and wide are bringing projects to life using the pen.
CircuitScribe pens are the same size as everyday ball point pens. The conductive ink is non-toxic and drys at room temperature. Unlike many other items needed for the makerspace, CircuitScribe pens start at just $19.95 and they have bundles that can be purchased specifically for schools and makerspaces.
In the CircuitScribe shop you can purchase ready made kits that include CircuitScribe pens, batteries, buzzers, lights, other components and workbooks chalk full of ideas. For education, Circuit Scribe has tons of lesson plans and project ideas plus there’s a Circuit Scibe community of teachers across the country sharing ideas.
Circuit Scribe also easily fits in with your PBL initiatives and maker spaces. Several projects that teachers have created incorporate other STEM/STEAM products like Makey Makey and Sphero.
With Circuit Scribe for education teachers and schools can purchase ready to use kits in bulk complete with standards aligned lesson plans. The company is constantly adding to it’s arsenal of electronic components that kids and teachers can use to create with. Some of the available modules include:
