Science - Hectic Electric
“Hectic Electric! Discover the wonder of electricity, how to channel it in circuits and build your project powered by electrical energy!”
This a great week, doing all the fun experiments to bring you into the world of understanding how electricity behaves and how to work with it safely. With Rit Zbikowski from the The Edinburgh Academy Junior School you will experiment with static electricity, discover different forms of power, and devise a creation out of recycled materials that you can take home and keep! Who is a budding electrical wizard? Find out as you learn and have fun this summer!
Approximate Week Plan (very flexible as we must go with the electrical flow):
Monday: How is electricity made? Trying out various methods of producing power with some surprising results.
Tuesday: Battery discovery! How chemicals get those electrons moving to start creating our first circuits.
Wednesday: Design your prototype. Can you take someone else’s trash and make it your treasure—powered by electricity?
Thursday: Getting to work. Using the right tools for the job can we assemble the project and get it working?
Friday: The Exhibition. Can you present your project and wow your audience with your unique creation?
