Let's Invent! Episode Four: Scrappy Circuits with Michael Carroll

April 14, 2020

Today Tom and Colleen met with Michael Carroll from Scrappy Circuits. Scrappy Circuits are a perfect concept for inventing from home, because just like how we believe the world is your construction kit, Mike and Chris believe that you can make circuits with the stuff you have at home in your junk drawer! Check out the Scrappy Circuits episode to see how to hack a tea light for a coincell battery and LED and then start building your own core bricks with cardboard and office supplies!


Other Resource Mentioned

  • Core Brick Montage from Mike

  • Last year Louise Morgan asked for ideas on creating a scoring switch with a ball.... Colleen created this scrappy circuit in response!
