|Group circuit. How many people
can you connect?
The first activity of the day was to test the conductivity of different materials. It seems that Play-Doh is conductive and so is pencil led. I don't think I ever realized how many everyday products are conductive.
One idea we were shown was when a teacher selects a new game each week and has the students design a controller that will create the "natural" movements for the game while functioning as a switch to complete the circuit.

picture with the Nittany Lion.
- Avoid dollar store foil because it rips easily and is hard to manipulate.
- Aluminum Foil Tape is conductive and lasts longer than copper tape.
- Find "busy work" when the students are given time to create. This will force you as the teacher/trainer not to help solve the problem.
