Squishy Circuits workshop! | Having fun learning about electronics by playing with conductive dough

On July 2nd, I will be facilitating a workshop on Squishy circuits, kindly hosted by Tog and taught by Tríona O’Connell.

Squishy circuits are a great way to demonstrate electrical circuits to kids (and adults!). It consists of a conductive dough and an insulating dough that are used in the building of circuits, along with batteries and more usual electrical components like motors and LEDs. During the workshop, we will make some batches of both types of dough, and afterwards we’ll see some useful demos you can use to teach with it, and also have some hands-on fun building circuits.

For more information, including how to register, see the Tog announcement.


If you're around Dublin and knowledgeable about some cool open project for which you would like to share the love with that kind of event, please get in touch with me! I would love to have more of these workshops in Tog! See my About page for contact info.
