3rd Grade Electronics Registration Starts Nov 22nd, 2011
How did Ben Franklin figure out a way to harness electricity, thus making it possible for generations of kids to play all those annoying video games for hours on end? How? By playing around with it!
Under the well-grounded guidance of our resident electrical engineer, your students will build and learn about:
-series and parallel circuits, and how they’re used every day
-digital logic circuits – for electronic devices that make ‘choices’
-noise maker circuits – for fun
-motion and light-activated alarm circuits
And yes, we’ll do a few take-home electronics projects, including an electromagnet and a simple motor!
$140 (includes $25 materials fee)
