The Invention Engine punch tools are used for punching holes in cardboard. Use the punch tool along with the stencil to attach the Invention Engine bits and the hub to cardboard. The inner punch tool is used with the stencil to create perforated lines in cardboard that can easily be pushed out. The various Invention Engine bits can then fit through these pushed out sections. The outer punch tool is used to punch holes for the rivets through the cardboard. Use the stencil to create a pattern of indentations, then using the indentations as a guide, punch holes through the cardboard.

The Invention Engine digital display bit is an output bit that emits patterns of light using LEDs that are attached to a special display board. The digital display board has five individual digit spaces. Each digit space contains seven lines which make up a rectangle-shaped grid. Behind each line there is a single LED which can be turned on or off independently. #STEM #STEAM #edtech #coding #learntocode #engineering #designthinking #computerscience #cardboard #electronics Digital Display Board, Cardboard
