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!
