In this workshop, participants are going to learn about the basics of Electronics and Electric Circuit. They will be using DC Motors, Cell Batteries and Conductive Tape to create a prototype that combines art and technology.

After attending this session, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the basics of Electronics & Electric Circuits. 
  • Learn about Conductive tape, smart materials and where they are used . 
  • Create prototypes where art & technology can be combined for better results.


What You'll Need

Laser Cutter, Scissors, Glue Gun, Conductive Tape, Motor , Battery, Markers, Glue, Cardboard, Paper, Paper Clippers.

The Instructions



1- Introduce the participants to Studio 5.

2- Ask the participants what is the meaning of electricity.

3- Ask the participants what is an electric circuit.



4- Show a video that explains electric circuits.

5- Ask the participants what is electrical conductivity and what materials are conductive materials.

6- Introduce participants to conductive tape & smart materials.

7- Show the participants examples of prototypes of conductive tape .

8- Show the participants how to connect a simple circuit with conductive tape.



9- Show the participants what will we do today.


10- Show the participants all the needed materials.


Show the participants the step-by-step process of creating the prototype.





1- Cut the cardboard on the shape of the circles then use the needle/toothpick to make a hole in the middle of it.

2- We used our laser cutting machine to cut the cardboard and paper.



3- Put the motor in the holes of the discs then use the glue gun to stick everything together.



4- Trace the circuit using the conductive tape.

5- Show a video of tips & tricks on how to use conductive tape.

6-Add tape to the motor and attach it to its place.



7- Attach the wires to the circuit put the batteries in their position and use the paper clip 

to make sure they are in place then test the circuit.



8- Create holes in the disc papers then attach it to the motors.



9- Test the prototype to see if it is working.




1- Challenge participants to find ways to make the spin your way to art prototype environment friendly.

2- Show the participants various ways & examples of making the prototype an environment friendly prototype.
