Paper Bread

An interactive electronics lesson plan builder for teachers
Made in partnership with The Construct @ RIT

This was developed to be a breadboarding tool with aims to help educators create simple lesson plans on electronics by allowing plans to be printed out on a sheet of paper. This paper can be laid on top of the board and let the students ‘Lite Bright’ the components through the paper into the board. This allows students to learn about real tools with a low learning curve for a cost-effective price.

Simply move the parts onto the breadboard. There are jumper wires, lights, sensors, and ICs. When the arrangement is acceptable hit the print button and the finished board will be scaled and printed. The paper will fit over a breadboard perfectly and allow it to be used as a stencil to insert parts through.

This tool, made in partnership with The Construct @ RIT, is for teachers and parents to be able to teach kids about electronics in a simple way. We greatly care about cost so this tool will always be free and the equipment will always be as cost-effective as possible. If you have any questions please feel free to email the developer at -
