Conductive Paintings (Maker Programs)

Photo of weekend Maker Programs.

Today in the Gadgets Cafe we played with conductive paint! We let the guests paint with acrylic paints and then helped them use conductive paint to connect a battery to an LED. This process took much longer than we had anticipated as we learned that you need to let the conductive paint dry for it to work best. That didn't seem to bother the guests too much because they all seemed to want to make more and more paintings! We had a total of 19 guests, which made sense since the average time spent working on their projects was around an hour. This was a fun one, a little MESSY, but worth it. :)
