I designed this small lamp for my summer camp students who built the 8 watt stereo amplifier. Before they attempted to solder all the components for the amp i let them solder the switch and light fitting. They had no idea i had made these lamps for them so i hope they enjoy the lovely warm glow. The sizes of popsicle sticks used are 11.5 cm and 6 cm. The base was a 5mm thick piece of board that i had lying around, inside the lamp are matchsticks which stop the lamp from falling over the base. The bulb is 7 watt and produces a lovely warm light.

This very simple paper toy is really good for young children to make. All of my students have made one and really enjoyed the joy of it changing shapes. My son made this example when I was teaching in summer camp this summer. click here for the instructions
