|Recurring Event (See all)

An event every week that begins at 10:00 am on Saturday, happening 5 times

$15

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

February 19th: Scrappy Circuits: Students will learn about simple circuits by building their own circuit kits out of household materials.
February 26th: Soft Circuits: Students will experiment with conductive thread to sew a working parallel circuit.
March 5th Electric Motors: Students will learn how electric motors work while exploring the properties of electromagnetism and building their own “stripped-down” motor.
March 12th Generating Electricity: Students will build their own wind-powered turbine and learn about different ways electricity can be generated.
March 19th Extreme Artbots: Students will build an art-making robot using what they learned in previous sessions, batteries, dc motors, and their imaginations!
