University of ______ STEM educators have created a set of classroom activities that allow students to conceptually explore topics in electricity using reusable stickers and conductive tape. The stickers are shaped like houses and neighborhood buildings to add context to circuit configurations commonly taught in grades 6-12. Students are challenged to repurpose an inexpensive solar path light to add a renewable energy resource and storage to their model neighborhood configuration.
Prototyping with copper tape and reusable stickers is an accessible way to repeatedly engage learners of varied abilities and interests. Engineering design skills are promoted while engaging students as they solve problems and model electric circuits.
