    Circuit Tiles!

    Dear Oakland Toy Lab,My name is Rafael and I teach technological innovation in Brazil in a company called Nave a Vela.I've been to Singapore in July and had the privilege to attend to the Maker Faire 2016 where I got in touch with circuit tiles from https://makenlearn.wordpress.com/. I was instantly inspired by the thousand possibilities and brought the idea to my team.

Children loved to do it. Also, the possibility of ravaging old electronics fits wonderfully with this activity. However, once the circuits are built, we struggle a bit to do things with them! Does anyone have any suggestions regarding that?2. I'm struggling with having them to understand the transistor use. Does anyone have any idea of circuits that include transistors?3. Inspired by https://makenlearn.wordpress.com/, we used a spring instead of the screws. Our experience shows that Thanks a lot!Have a great time
