Regular, 60 minute presentation

In this session, participants of all ages are welcome to learn a little more about electricity and circuits. What makes the lights turn on at your house? And can you build your own light-up circuit? We'll learn about the difference between conducting and insulating materials, and then we'll use two different playdough recipes to build sculptures that will conduct electricity and turn on some LED lights.
