Teaching circuitry safely with playdough: Squishy Circuits

There was a TED talk that took the world by storm with the concept of squishy circuits

Using different types of playdough, LED lights, and electric gizmos kids learn about circuit design.

When I asked the author, Ann Marie Thomas, she said lessons plans would be coming soon.

My local hackerspace group pointed me to the lesson plans which are now online. Thanks, Conan!
