This session is all about having fun with play dough and learn about electricity and circuits. It is really geared towards younger kids in the Grade 1-5. It is based on the idea of "Squishy Circuits (http://courseweb.stthomas.edu/apthomas/SquishyCircuits/)" . (http://courseweb.stthomas.edu/apthomas/SquishyCircuits/).) You will get to create Things using play dough, batteries, LED etc. You will start with some sample models to build and then it is up to your imaginations and the material available in the workshop. You will get to see one of the simpler creations being controlled by none other than the open source microcontroller, Arduino.
