LED Pull Tab Circuit Lesson
Students can create a circuit that lights up, using a small battery, some wire, and LED, and a pull-tab switch that they make out of paper. This lesson describes how to make the pull-tab switch component and how to wire the circuit. The paper components can be made using a personal fabrication system, or can be made with exacto knives and scissors.

What is WISEngineering?
WISEngineering is a free, online environment that guides students through engineering design projects. Students collaborate as they brainstorm ideas, create and test solutions, refine and retest their designs, critique and share their projects. WISEngineering enables students to learn relevant science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) concepts and skills in a just-in-time manner, and provides teachers and students with in-time feedback and assessment results about student learning.
WISEngineering leverages the open-source Web-based Inquiry Science Environment (WISE) from the University of California, Berkeley.
