Invention + Adventure = Inventure.
During this hands on workshop you will create flexible circuits with sound, movement and light for walls, wearables, and objects.
We will explore social and psychological topics of invention and entrepreneurship throughout the session individually and in teams. Finally, we will use our projects to navigate a story building machine called Mission Control : The Game.
