Week 8-9: Final Project: Build an Earthquake Sensing Circuit

This two week project involved students using squishy circuits to build, in essence, a motion-sensing circuit that would alert them when an earthquake was happening-- ie: when the shake table was on.  There turned out to be really two approaches--- either students began with a closed circuit and the simulator disconnected it (the "alert" being the light turning off, the sound stopping, etc) or students began with an open circuit, and the simulator closed it (so the light/sound turned on.)
