18 May 2015 - 27 May 2015

Squishy Circuits provides a safe and playful way for young children to learn about electrical circuits. Using two different types of play-dough as circuit-building materials — one that conducts electricity and one that does not — children will build a low-voltage electrical sculpture that lights up. It’s a fun, hands-on introduction to the fundamental concepts that make electrical circuits work.

All materials are provided…. including play-doh, batteries, wires and LEDs. The workshop concludes with a glow-in-the dark surprise and students can keep their finished Squishy Circuits.
