Well, we hit a big stumbling block when we tried to finish the Squishy Circuits program in December.  A pretty important part of the event required internet access, and the library (as well as a large swath of southern Illinois) experience a service outage just as the program was starting.  So, let's try this again!  The St. Louis Science Center graciously agreed to come back in February to finish this last part of a four-part series.

Since September we've designed and modeled unique instruments, we're printing the instruments into existance with the library's 3D printer, and we've programmed online software to make certain commands do silly things.  On Wednesday, February 11 at 6:00, we close the circle by connecting the online software programs to the 3D-printed instruments using Squishy Circuits!  We'll use different kinds of dough (similar to Play-Doh) to attach and operate the circuits.

Remember to call the library at 618-344-1112 or stop by in person to sign up!

This program is part of the Teen Initiative (TI) 2014-2015 series.  Check out our online event calendar to see what's coming up next!  And remember, every time you visit the library, sign up in advance for a program, and attend a program, you earn TI points which you can redeem for fun tech toys or use to lower your overdue fines!

BTW, Squishy Circuits would be a lot of fun to use with the library's MaKey MaKey kits.  You can check both of these out from the lower circulation office with your TI card!
