Workshop #3 – Squishy Circuits

Christopher Hall, a champion of young makers, will be leading an all day, ongoing workshop where you get to create Squishy Circuits. What’s that, do you ask? Well imagine you had a battery, a couple wires, and an LED connected together so the LED lights up. Now, replace the wires with a mixture that acts like conductive Play Doh, and you’ve got yourself a squishy circuit!

You’ll get to cook up this concoction and then learn some circuitry basics with switches, LEDs, and batteries. Each participant will get a small kit so that they can continue with their electrical experiments at home. Friends and adults alike are encouraged to participate!

  1. Is there somewhere we should sign up for this workshop beforehand or do we just show up? I can’t wait to see this.

  2. Hey Ben – this is one of the workshops where you’ll just show up. We’re still working out logistics a bit though, so if we do decide that a sign-up is necessary, you’ll be the first to know. Hopefully it won’t be an issue since this workshop will go on for the entire day!
