Papertronics are LED toys. Spaceboy, AlienGirl and Tabula Rasa (blank one you can design yourself), they are all electronic and have an LED in them once assembled. They offer a constructionist approach to learning a simple electronics lesson. They are printed with soy inks on recycled paper.
Papercraft is a practical and evocative way to introduce STEAM concepts. Keeps little hands busy learning hands-on concepts. Engineering and design concepts are baked into papercraft projects. 2D shapes become 3D shapes. Batteries, conductive tapes and lights add technology.
