In the Maker Shed: Gakken’s Aurorarium


Gakken’s Aurorarium is a fun and easy to build LED light kit available in the Maker Shed. It would be a great first-time project to make with your kids. You don’t even need any tools to build the Aurorarium. All you need are (4) AA batteries and a little time for assembly. Check out all the great Gakken kits that we carry in the Maker Shed.

Create your own aurora-like effects with this awesome device. Leave the cone on and enjoy the soft changing lights, or fill the tray with water and see the amazing aurora lights on your wall or ceiling. Instructions are in Japanese but features highly detailed assembly pictures, sorry no English translation at this time. Easy to build.
