Nuclarity is a fun and interactive game for children ages 3-6 where the child places game pieces in the correct spot, similar to the classic children’s game where you put shaped blocks in the correct hole. In Nuclarity, completing a circuit lights up a small neighborhood.
The game pieces represent different parts of our electrical grid: the power plant, the high voltage power lines, and the consumer, in this case, a neighborhood of houses. The game pieces are 3D printed and have a 3” x 3” base. When placed in the correct orientation on the laser cut wooden box a circuit is completed, lighting up the neighborhood tile. The circuit consists of batteries, LED’s, and conductive 1/4” copper tape. This game teaches kids that the electricity powering their house comes from somewhere and that there is a whole system of infrastructure keeping their lights
