for a meaning all in all,
on a stage of equal weights
on which singulars are stars

The reflections that follow are attributed to a Professor from AUTH, Greece.

This is how kids can do electrical circuits just by playing with dough. Here it is… the squishy circuits project page, with recipes of conductive and insulating dough along with example circuits and project videos.
