Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Put the origami paper color side down
Fold on the horizontal diagonal. Crease well and unfold.
Fold both top and bottom tips to meet in the center and crease.
Fold the bottom again both sides to the center.
Fold both left and right tips.
Fold each corner towards the center. Each corner to the middle of the opposite side.
Hide each corner into the flap.
Paper over and fold each corner as in the picture.
Fold the six papers exactly the same.
For assembling, use 1 of each color. Insert the tips into the pockets of the other paper.
Insert another tip into the other side of pocket.
Flip the paper over, once you have the top side bring up the tips above and insert them into the pocket of the new paper.
Keep inserting the tips into the pockets. And you will finish assembling it.
To put light on it: take one folded paper, the Cooper Tape, 1 CR016 Battery , 1 Transistor 2N700 NCH MOSFET, 1 LED, 1 Resistor 1k ohm, insulating tape and scissors.
Cut about 4 cm of cooper tape and stick it from the left corner diagonal to the center.
Cut another piece of cooper tape, about 10 cm. Paper over and stick the tape 2 cm from the right conrner, paper over again and continue sticking the tape as in the picture, stop when you get the same distance as the first tape.
Put the battery just above the end of the first tape and stick the second tape on the battery guiding the tape to the left down corner.
Cut a third piece of cooper tape, about 8 cm. Turn over the paper and stick the third tape beside the second tape. Turn over the paper again and continue sticking the tape closely to the left edge as in the picture. Be sure the tapes do not touch each other.
Cut and stick some insulating tape, enough to cover the battery, the first and second cooper tape.
Take the transistor and put it above the black tape, flat side upward. Make sure the first leg is touching the first cooper tape. Cut some cooper tape and stick it on as in the picture.
Put the resistor right below the second leg of the transistor, be sure the legs are touching each other and the resistor's bottom is touching the third cooper tape. Cut two more pieces of cooper tape to stick the resistor to the transistor and the resistor's bottom to the third cooper tape, as in the picture.
Take the LED and stick its shortest leg to the third leg of the transistor, with cooper tape also. Stick the shortest leg of the LED to the second cooper tape. Look the picture.
Finally we have the magic. Touch the second and third cooper tape at the same time so the light can be on. To turn it of, touch the third and first cooper tape at the same time. Look the picture.
You can assemble 5 color papers and fold one transparent paper to be able to see the light.
