Make a light up Valentine (or other card)

We still have one space open in the Tween LED Workshop on Monday, February 2, at 4:15.  A 4th-8th grade student can still sign up and join us!  We will take a look at Squishy Circuits to learn about how a circuit works.  Then tweens will have a chance to create a card that incorporates LED lights.

You can find some basic instructions for creating an LED card here:

This website also has some neat ideas for simple projects kids can make with LEDs:
