Learning about electronics with squishy circuits

On Saturday afternoon, we held a very successful workshop on Squishy Circuits, a great tool to introduce children to electrical circuits.

We started the afternoon by learning how to make both conductive dough and insulating dough, and after a cool demonstration on using an Arduino together with a buzzer to test the dough resistance, we started making our own squishy circuits and other wonderful (sometimes!) creations using the 2 types of dough, LEDs and 9V batteries.

Everyone had fun no matter their age, and I’d like to thank again all our awesome attendees, as well as our very cool teacher TrĂ­ona.
