NEXMAP Sparks Kids’ Imaginations, Teaches Simple Circuitry, And Fosters Critical Thinking.

Paper meets electronics — NEXMAP reimagines literacy and hands-on learning, connecting creative inquiry and artistic practice with electronics, open data, and personal fabrication. We’re opening up a new kind of innovation for all learners, one that responds directly to the question:

What does it mean to be future-ready?




Circuit Stickers, Notebook Hacking and Learning as Debugging

It's not just about learning electronics.
It's about learning learning.

Hacking the Notebook to Illuminate Your Thinking

I like that it really made me think bigger than the classroom...what I learned is a) cool and b) actually applicable. If feel like we get too wrapped up in one subject at school and don’t take time to integrate so this was a nice change.

Hack Your Notebook with Paper Circuits Reflection

I think my students will have a greater natural desire to make and create through problem solving as opposed to more formal controlled scientific experiments. These are important, but I think students are missing the opportunity to play and tinker as a scaffold to structured inquiry.
