Anyone that is looking to teach the basics of electrical circuits to children may be interested in a new range of projects that are available using Squishy Circuits Kits.
Squishy Circuits Kits provide a conductive play dough that can be used to create a wide variety of different projects while teaching the basics of electronics to the younger generation.
Watch the video below to learn more about the inspiration, design and development of the Squishy Circuits Kits which have taken to Kickstarter this week to raise the the $30,000 they require to make the jump into production.
Squishy Circuits uses conductive and insulating play dough to teach the basics of electrical circuits in a fun, hands-on way. Let your creations come to life as you light them up with LEDs, make noises with buzzers, and spin with the motor. Everyone! Squishy Circuits has been used in classrooms, homes, libraries, and museums in all 50 states and over 20 countries. The stories and experiences we have heard are incredible, ranging from science fair exhibits to nursing home activities. Squishy Circuits has even been invited to the White House!
Squishy Circuits is very simple and is based on two play doughs – one that is conductive (electricity flows through it) and one that is insulative (does not allow electricity to flow through it). We are excited to have pre-made dough that you can purchase directly from our store, or you can make your own doughs with the provided recipes.
Power is supplied by a 4AA battery pack and travels through the conductive dough to provide power to LEDs (Light Emitting Diodes), buzzers, or motors. Squishy Circuits are easy to make!
