What do a police car, UFO, cupcake, and a dragon have in common? They all help kids learn about electricity in Circuit Clay. The book lays out directions for sculpting 13 creations from conductive and insulating clay, LEDs, and a battery pack and gives easy lessons on circuits, short circuits, conductivity, and more. Tips help kids determine why their robot's eyes aren't lighting up, say, and then encourages them to design their own circuitry projects.
