Brown Dog Gadgets – Paper Circuits Knife Switch

July 15 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am PDT

It’s easy to see how the switch is “opened” or “closed” which represent the two states of a single throw switch. Knife switches are not used for most modern day circuits as they have been replaced by switches that are safer at high voltages, but since we’ll be working with low voltage circuits this DIY cardboard knife switch…

Tinkering at Home with the Exploratorium – Cranky Contraptions

July 23 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am PDT

Cranky Contraptions Cranky Contraptions are homemade kinetic toys that produce a variety of motions (up and down, side to side, and more) by turning a wire "crank." Learners use everyday materials to tinker with ideas about storytelling and mechanical motion and bring whimsical creations to life! During this one hour workshop, we will make cranky contraptions together! Gather your materials and ideas ahead of time. Get inspiration from others as we build. Share your creations during the session and online…
