Squishy Circuits

Inspire your inner Ben Franklin! Children of all ages create circuits and explore electronics—even making electricity flow with their own doughy wires.

Learn about electricity, conductors and insulators by creating circuits with playdough.

Squishy Circuits

The museum educators taught an electric circuits program experimenting with Squishy Circuits.

We used two different formulas of flour dough, one conducting, the other insulating, to create electronic circuits. We learned a lot, and you can too if you follow the link.

Squishy Circuits became the heart of our winter 2012-2013 program about electricity, conductors and insulators.
