Paper Circuits Coding Workshop (ages 12–18)

June 25 @ 15 h 00 min - 16 h 30 min

Paper Circuits Coding Workshop

With David Zikovitz

For ages 12–18

 

We all know paper is magic. Putting words and pictures on paper can transport us to new worlds, teach us new ideas, and give us new experiences. In this workshop we’ll find out what else paper can do, giving it a technological upgrade and turning it into so much more! We’ll incorporate conductive materials and electronics components and explore paper’s structural qualities to make cards, books, or sculptures that come to three-dimensional, interactive life.
