Welcome. You should have received your kit for Young Edison Series titled Make Light Up Art. Awesome! Here’s what to do next.
Start with the unboxing video, see what are the materials you’ve received. Then follow the 4 Steps to Creative Confidence, i.e. Try It, Learn It, Make It & Innovate It!
Remember, you can ask questions at any point of time using our form. We usually respond within 24 hours. You also get one LIVE session for the box, which you can book using the button at the bottom of the page.
So, let’s get started!
Haven’t got a box? Book one now!
What can you make with this box?
You can make something truly creative with this box. If you like the Avengers, make something about that, if landscapes are your thing, we would like to see it, and if Harry Potter’s magic wand is what you want to light up, that’s great too! Here’s what some of our students made. Scroll through for inspiration!
What's inside the box?
What’s in the box is the beginning of your journey towards creative confidence!
In this journey, we will try many new things together. Some may work on the first try, some may not. Stick with it till it works!
As I like to say, “Tough is where the fun is” Let’s begin!
Module 1: Try it!
“The secret of getting ahead is getting started. “
– Mark Twain
So let’s get started! Watch the video and try making your first circuit. Watch the trouble shooting section if something doesn’t work in the first try. Use the button below to ask us a question if it still doesn’t work. Remember to add a picture of your circuit so we can help out!
We made our first circuit, with an LED, battery and copper tape. The LED lit up! What made it light up? Let’s look at the next module, Learn it.
Module 2: Learn it!
“For the things we have to learn before we can do them, we learn by doing them.” ― Aristotle
Let’s look at the workbook and complete the challenges on it. Let’s also do a conductivity test.
For this, you need (other than the kit):
Pencil, eraser, aluminum foil, ruler, any other item in your house that you want to test.
The LED lights up because of electricity! We learnt what electricity is, what conductivity is, and also found out a few tips related to making good circuits. What new materials did you try out? And what did you find out? Let us know
Module 3: Make it!
You have a really fun greeting card template in the box for this activity. Review your learning on how to make a circuit, and practice some art in making the card look beautiful! Use whatever materials you’re comfortable or happy using, be it color pencils, brush pens, paints or crayons!
Share what you make with us. Tag us @tinkeramablr in your posts and add the hashtag #makewithTinkerama
When you make one project, usually ideas start flying! Take a note of these ideas in a notebook, and be ready to innovate your designs!
Here are some questions you can try to answer.
– How will you make this project better?
– If you could do it again, how would you do it differently?
Module 4: Innovate it!
Make your own light up art. Come up with your own design, try it out once before doing it for real on the cardstock provided. Try any of the following features in your art to innovate your design! Make as many as you want!
In addition to the kit provided, use markers, crayons, paints, anything that will help you make beautiful art!
Parallel Circuit – Watch the video to know how I made parallel circuits in the traffic signal!
Tab Switch – This is also shown in the video.
Slide Switch – This would be your innovation! Make one and share it with me in the live session!
Can you think of something totally new to try out? If so, how would you go about it?
How about making the circuit 3D – pop up art maybe?
