Squishy Circuits: Building Squishy Circuits #makereducation

Home

Squishy Circuits is site built by students in engineering at the University of St. Thomas. The site has a bunch of great circuits projects tutorials for young engineers that use play dough. Highlights include the Buzzer Circuit tutorial and the Advanced RGB LED tutorial!

These activities are designed such that the dough is used to connect components. Never connect components, such as LEDs, directly to the battery pack, as running too much current through components can damage them, possibly causing them to overheat or pop. Follow standard electricity safety considerations. (Our youngest participants are fans of these brightly colored safety glasses!)
