Introduction

Use these easy to make Paper Circuits Cubes to demonstrate the basics of circuitry. Learn about open and closed circuits, polarity, power and components.

Besides our Paper Circuits Kit (which contains Maker Tape, batteries, and LEDs) you'll need a few magnets, washers, and tape.

  1. If you haven't built any cubes yet make sure to check out the guide for Paper Circuits Cubes first. Use this cube to split off power in three different directions if you want to get creative with your cube arrangements.

    • Note: Since this cube connects on four sides you’ll need to add twice as many magnets and washers as a standard cube uses.

    • We’ve colored one of the circuit paths red and left the other one gray so you can easily see how they each connect. (One will be positive, the other negative.)

    • Reminder: Assemble the cube before you apply the Maker Tape as it needs to wrap around all sides of the completed cube.

  2. With the Power Splitter Cube you can now branch your circuit off left or right instead of just going straight. Try adding a Switch Cube between your power and your LEDs. Try adding a Switch Cube between your power and your LEDs.
