Looking for an engaging STEAM experience for middle schoolers? The BARE Conductive’s Robot Parade comes with everything you for up to 30 students. Each participant will paint their own circuit, using the black, puffy electric paint that made BARE Conductive famous. The activity introduces students to circuit symbols, component polarity and switches. Powered by 3V, coin-cell batteries, the robot pictures light up red, green or yellow when the circuit is painted correctly.
The activity takes about an hour to complete, with 10 to 15 minutes dedicated to dry time for the water-based, nontoxic and solvent free paint. If a little paint gets on a student, don’t worry! The paint can be removed with soap and water.
The Robot Parade kit can be purchased from the BARE Conductive Website for £65.00.
