Featured Activity Kit: Squishy Circuits

Looking for an exciting and educational way to teach your students about electrical circuits?  Squishy Circuits may be the thing you’ve been searching for!

With Squishy Circuits, electrical circuits can be installed without the need of breadboards or soldering. Instead, to power the circuits all your students need are the play dough (made from the recipe provided with the package) and batteries.  Further components are also provided: five LED lights (red, yellow, green, blue and white), the motor and also the piezoelectric buzzer provided inside the box. With the hands-on approach of Squishy Circuits, your students can discover new and innovative uses for circuits that they design.

Squishy Circuits is targeted for students eight years old or older. Students under eight should be closely supervised.  

Want to try it out? Squishy Circuits activity kit is currently on display on the ground floor of the OISE Library, next to the Circulation Desk-OISE students. For more experiment games similar to Squishy Circuits, please check out the OISE Library K-12 Manipulative Database or browse the 3rd floor of the Library.
