A world of infinite possibilities. That is the Intel® Future Skills vision. And this is just the beginning of your journey toward innovative thinking and doing.

Welcome to the Paper Circuits project. Your mission is to create interactive art. It could even be functional in some way. Think Christmas or birthday cards, table decorations, wall hangings, or mobiles—you name it! Be as creative as your mind and team allow.

What will your theme be and how will you light it up? Will it be a light-up card, a kids book with back-lit stars, or some other flat light-up object?

When you are finished, share your design and feedback with us. We look forward to hearing from you!
