Cute, Conductive Elephants

Here in Philly we've discovered a neat group of people called "TechGirlz" who are running educational activities for girls involving - you guessed it - circuits, sewing, and creativity. Here's one of the projects for a workshop coming up at NextFab Studios near University of Pennsylvania campus.

"Our project will be crafting two elephants, a parent and baby. When their trunks are intertwined the baby elephant’s “heart” lights up."

Cute and clever conductivity!!!
