A new Kickstarter project has this week been launched, called Squishy Circuits, it has been launched with the aim of teaching kids about electronics.
It will teach the basics of electronic circuits, using a range of kits to create a wide variety of projects.
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 looking for $30,000 in funding on Kickstarter, to get to which, they are offering backers packages of the Squishy Circuit from $8.
