Jamie Hudson, a PhD scientist and crafter, gives an introduction to electronics and semiconductors while lighting up the lure on an anglerfish that you'll cut out of basswood on the Cricut Maker. Make a bunch, paint them different colors, and have a disco anglerfish party, finding out about bioluminescence and symbiosis while you're at it.
