In this workshop, participants are going to learn how to create interactive lights using smart materials and a pre-programmed electrical board that has different functionalities installed in it, participants are going to use the conductive paint as a replacement of wires as well as touch and proximity sensors, the lamps that the participants are going to create are going to be fabricated using paper.
2. Electrical paint lamp kit.
