Squishy Circuits

Ever played with play dough? Remember all those fun creations you made? How about adding lights to those playdough shapes and lighting them up! This workshop is all about having fun while learning new things. Kids will experiment with batteries and LED's along with conductive and insulating dough. Also, they will learn about electricity, circuits, voltage,  current, and series and parallel connections. 

This is  our next workshop in the series on Internet of Things (IOT). 

This workshop will be presented by Pavi Bhatter and is based on the concept of "Squishy Circuits".

Thank you for your support and participation!

    On behalf of Pavi: Hello everyone! Thank you so much for taking time out of your day and coming to my Squishy Circuit workshop! This was my first workshop so I was a little nervous at first. However, I feel much more encouraged and confident now to host more workshops in the future! I had TONS of fun and I hope you did too and learned about circuits and electricity! :)

    I have uploaded my presentation from today ( http://bit.ly/2014-08-SQUISHY ). You have the recipes and materials now so you can continue to have fun at home! If you have any more questions, feel free to shoot me an email at [masked].

    Thanks
    Pavi

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
