Students in grades 3rd – 8th will enjoy these lessons about generating electricity and circuits that challenge them to use what they’ve learned to create and build working, simple electronics.  Click here to sign up!
Note program dates below:

February 11th: Building Batteries: Students will learn how batteries work by building their own and testing their power.
February 18th: Scrappy Circuits: Students will learn about simple circuits by building their own circuit kits out of household materials.
February 25th: Soft Circuits: Students will experiment with conductive thread to sew a working parallel circuit.
March 4th Electric Motors: Students will learn how electric motors work while exploring the properties of electromagnetism and building their own “stripped-down” motor.
March 11th Generating Electricity: Students will build their own wind-powered turbine and learn about different ways electricity can be generated.
March 18th Extreme Artbots: Students will build an art-making robot using what they learned in previous sessions, batteries, dc motors, and their imaginations!
