LED Greeting Cards Pt. 2 (Soldering)

3rd graders soldered LEDs to the copper tape on their paper circuit greeting cards this week. We talked about how components like LEDs are connected in circuits with solder inside their electronic devices. We also stressed safety, using safety glasses and steady assistance of teachers with the hot soldering irons. This project was inspired by the amazing work of Jie Qi from the High-Low Tech Group at the MIT Media Lab. Check the link for some card templates.
