How this quest started…
Every Valentine’s Day I like to make a special valentine with my son’s portrait. It usually involves some sort of crafting. This year, I resolved to do something entirely different!
It wasn’t long before I became CIRCUIT OBSESSED! And was, constantly, looking for things to ELECTRIFY! I advanced from one LED to many, from series to parallel circuits, from copper tape to solid wire, from one battery to multiple batteries, with switches, buttons and dials.
Halloween got the circuit treatment…
As did Dia de los Muertos…
And, even the Coney Island “Put On A Funny Face Mask Contest”…
Two Exploratorium and one Chibitronics course later…
