The curriculum for the Electrical Engineering program is designed to introduce students to the concepts of circuit design and building, through various hands-on activities. Students will walk away with exciting take home builds an in-depth knowledge on basic circuits.
Conductor Finder & Snap Circuits
Children will test a variety of materials to discover their electrical properties. Students then will use Snap Circuits to further their understanding of electric circuits and test different ways to install the LED’s to discover their unique properties.
During this lesson, students will get to test their knowledge on circuit building. The students will be building flashlights out of a disposable water bottle. By the end of this lesson students will have a very firm understanding of how an electrical circuit works.
This lesson will focus on magnets and how they can be used to raise a vehicle above the ground. By raising a vehicle above the ground, students will discover the advantages that a levitating vehicle can have.
During this lesson, students will learn how to transform wind energy into electricity. They will be challenged to design the most efficient rotor blades for their wind turbine while taking into account size, weight, shape, and angle
