Using a DIY conductive dough/clay you will create your own creatures and adorn them with working (basic) electronics like LED's and buzzers. Always wanted to create a snail with blinking lights? Or a lovely heart with lights? This is your chance! This workshop is aimed at kids (4 - 10yrs) Supervision of an adult is required. The dough uses food coloring and is made using basic food ingredients. Food allergies? Check the recipe in our repository before taking part!
Using nothing but basic kitchen ingredients (flour, salt, lemon juice, vegetable oil) we will create a conductive dough (clay) in different colors (using food coloring). Combined with a battery pack (6Volts) the dough is conductive enough due to the salt and lemon juice (and therefor also not edible) to power LED's and a simple buzzer.
You will be able to sculpt your own creations. Add basic electronics like LED's and buzzers and make them come alive! This workshop is aimed at kids (4 - 10yrs) Supervision of an adult is required. Food allergies? Check the recipe in our repository before taking part!

Reading texts like this one, of people tooting their own horn in third-person. Ah well, let's go on and see how much more stuff I can cram into this text-area.

As a hobby he likes to create weird sounds & combine this with old Public Domain footage. Did you know Björn is quite a decent cook? He loves to make vegetarian wraps with veggies, and according to his wife, too much beans. He looks forward to be giving a workshop with his kids. Björn is interested in way too many things. Sorry, this is just too much! Are you still here? Perhaps you've read enough about me. Now, go away! Ride a bicycle into nature or read a book :)
