Squishy Circuits is a workshop that is all about having fun while learning about the basics of circuitry including electricity, current, voltage, and conductive/insulating materials. Combining science, art, and technology, this hands-on workshop allows individuals to create a variety of figures using play dough, batteries, LEDs, and wires. This workshop has been a huge hit this past year, with sessions at OSCON, JavaOne, Silicon Valley Code Camp, Black Girls Code RobotExpo, and more. This webinar session will focus on the basic run through of a typical Squishy Circuits workshop, along with a Arduino demonstration. Squishy Circuits will truly make you stretch your imagination!
