Making/Breaking Circuits

We propose a session that looks at making in the humanities. We are going to demonstrate how to use a MakeyMakey to turn bananas into a keyboard, making paper circuits that will add lights or sound to paper, and making a contact mic to pick up sound waves from everyday objects.

Our presentation will demonstrate what someone can do with a few hours of practice, what resources are available as tutorials, and a conversation about how/why you could include these in humanities classes.
We anticipate taking time to do an introduction to these resources and giving people some time to play around with them as well.

    This sounds like a great idea to me. I’ve just been tinkering with an Arduino telegraph (like this one code.google.com/archive/p/tworsekey/), and would be happy to bring that along as well.

    This sounds awesome, Chris! I think people would definitely be interested in you bringing it.
