Make music out of almost anything, just like tech genius, Bryden Bandweth™! Complete an electrical circuit to turn bananas into a piano. Or use a flower, glass of water, ice cream – whatever you can dream up that conducts electricity -- and 4 other sound options to bang out more beats. #amazeblogs!
Picking Up S.T.E.A.M. Circuit Beats works by using you and the objects you choose to complete an electrical circuit. A very small amount of electricity needs to flow in a circular path from the circuit board and its battery and back. By holding the ground wire in one hand, you are giving a return path for the electricity. By connecting the board to something that conducts electricity (like a banana) and tapping it with your finger from your other hand, you are completing the circuit and allowing electrons to flow through you!
