 Totem modules can be used in many ways. We already have tested two different [[activities|activities]] based on them during "je suis une vraie pile électrique !"​. We also learned than they can be connected in different ways: by using crocodile cables; by putting them on a aluminum track; or by simply making them touch each others. It would be cool to test making connection using conductive ink or metal rails! Totem modules can be used in many ways.
