How might we design a series of kits that teach children the basics of electronic circuits, and guide them to build paper models activated with sensors?
1) Create an educative product that can be practical and easy enough for children to make,
2) Use paper as the main material,
3) Use the custom made components (sensors and outputs) that Teknikio already have,
4) Within the constraints described above, find a kit concept that can be augmented in the future and be adopted by different themes.
