About the DIT Electro Dough Kit
How Did We Use the DIY Electro-Dough Kit?
Learning about when to use a tilt switch:
We tried several of the experiments and it kept them busy for at least an hour! When it was done, we just boxed back up all the components to use again next time.
What Are Our Thoughts on the DIY Electro-Dough Kit?
All in all, I think it is a great asset to any classroom or homeschool. It is very cool to use the playdough to conduct the electricity and I can see us changing up the ingredients to make it different levels of conduction. The boys also learned that size matters when it came to how big a piece needed to be to work.
My dad gives this set two thumbs up, although he did get frustrated at our LED bulbs burning out several times. Fortunately, those are fairly easy to replace. He also talked about how it would be easy to add other components as desired to take it further.
I appreciated the the recipe for the playdough didn't include anything I didn't already have and it's non-toxic. It definitely adds another element to them playing with playdough.
Would We Recommend This Kit?
Yes! I think as a family we give this kit two thumbs up and I know that we will be pulling it out off and on throughout the year to explore more deeply. I'd love to give my mechanic husband a chance to explore it with the boys. I know he would have even more ideas than my dad did.
