Circuits - Spiders with Light Up Eyes

Students designed a spider, then created a circuit that would light up the eyes. The circuit was built on card stock using copper foil tape, 5 mm LED lights and a 3V battery. The project was modeled after the design found at The Learning Hypothesis - STEAM Week: Spiders with Light Up Eyes.
