THAT TX Family is going to be different from previous THATs, in ways we haven't even guessed yet. So I don't expect the old format for Circuits in Play-Doh to translate straight over, but in fact, my *original*-original concept was a self-directed play session with different challenges and components set at stations around a big room. And now the conference is going to be in my back yard, so as facilitator and Bringer of Blinky Bits, I have more flexibility (and luggage space). I have oodles of batteries and LEDs, plus many years of offering and observing the Play-Doh Circuits workshop at THAT and other venues, and I am ready to jump in, be useful, get creative, collaborate with THAT organizers, and bring whatever format of gleeful Makering that we think will work at THAT TX in 2022.

Prerequisites

Like Play-Doh, circuits truly are for everybody! Even grown-ups.

Take Aways

  • Learning troubleshooting and experimenting through play
  • Electronics can be incorporated into craft projects and artwork
  • You totally can learn about electronics, without needing some special training or background before you start
