Description:

Play-Doh is conductive! Use the semiconductive qualities of Play-Doh to make your own squeezable instrument. Pico Cricket is required. This activity is great as a walk-up activity for all ages, and can also be made into an hour long workshop about programming and electrical current, conductivity, and resistance. Note that this activity uses an older version of the Pico Cricket called a MIDI board—substitute and revise as needed. Mini-speaker is not required for newer Pico Crickets. No programming experience is necessary. This activity is for beginners.
