The aim of the workshop is to introduce young people to science and technology through experimentation and play. Employing the methodologies of STEAM education (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Math) and emerging from the Maker Movement ethics, the lab intends to stimulate young people’s imagination, creativity, curiosity through learning.
Participants learn about the basic principles of electricity and circuitry by creating unique interactive cards. Participants will decorate cards with brushes and conductive paint, while making a functioning circuit at the same time. The cards will eventually turn into a source of light and sound.
