Join Jen and her daughter, Stella, as we create beautiful, interactive crafts that light up with cool circuits. While we're creating art, we also will explore circuitry in a fun and supportive environment. Let's learn together about how to use electricity to create art! Using Chibitronics Sticker Circuits designed by a student at the MIT Media Lab, we will work on two projects based on the child's age and interest within their parent/child team. For the younger kids or those looking for a more basic project, we will create a greeting card. For older workshop attendees we will create an interactive light-up storybook. We'll write a simple five-page story using guided prompts, illustrate it, and wire up each page so that when a switch is pressed, a light will enhance the story experience.  Later in the day we'll have a showcase for campers to show off their creations! Ready to get crafty with circuits? Join Jen and Stella and let's start building!
