Tinkering with Circuits

  • Lab Workshop

Field Trip Top


Tinkering is mindful messing-about with tools and materials, with the goal of finding out their possibilities and limitations. When we tinker, we make new things from existing parts, solve problems and learn by making mistakes. In this workshop, your students will experiment with some unconventional, low current, circuit-building materials to meet design challenges.
