We will be at the OC Fair grounds doing doing a Squishy Circuits activity. Come down and see us!
Squishy Circuits are a project from the University of St. Thomas to allow kids and adults to explore electronics and create circuits using play dough.
By whipping up some simple ingredients you have in your kitchen, you can build circuits that light up, move, and that can be use to explore concepts like resistance, conductivity, and things like parallel and series circuits.
To make up a batch of squishy circuits, follow this easy recipe from Make Magazine. All you will need are ingredients that you probably have in your kitchen, some batteries, and some LED’s. Use this lesson plan to get started with your experiments.
