Virtual Maker Camp

Stitched circuits and musical instruments made from marshmallows are among the latest offerings in the 2017 Maker Camp, a virtual DIY camp sponsored by Make magazine. This year’s theme is electric circuits – and the fun things you can make with them, including greeting cards that light up. There are six projects, or pathways, in all, most of which would make fun classroom design activities as part of a science unit on electricity.
