ABOUT THE WORKSHOP

In this children’s workshop held at the Goa Science Center, teenagers learnt the building blocks of electronic systems. They learnt about the components of an electronic system, how to put them together and programmed them to react to touch. The participants were then taught how to make a flower that lights up when touched.
