DESCRIPTION: For curious kids who want to make waves through unexpected objects! Join this workshop if you want to learn how electric current flows and experiment to find out what surprising materials can sustain electricity. They will be invited to become circuit designers and scientists that will experiment on fruits, vegetables and more to see what kind of waves they can make! Turn everyday objects like bananas into touchpads, surprising sounds, or perhaps magical lights! Come and experiment with us.
