Optional materials for building prototypes


As students get the the final lessons in this unit, they’ll have a chance to build physical prototypes using the Circuit Playground. While this can be completed with nothing more than the classroom kit, cardboard, and tape, there are lots of useful supplies that you could get to expand the range of possibilities for your students. In particular, I like to stock up on:

These are just some of the basics that I always keep around, but I’d love to hear what the rest of you stock up on for physical computing projects!


I am very much interested to doing this unit with my class. Can you forward me information as to how to get started? Is this just in the beta phase?
Thank you!
