This is a fun fast moving workshop where the children learn the basics of electricity and circuit building. We cover all the topics required in the caps curriculum, but then we delve into the topic much deeper. The children build an understanding of how to manipulate the flow of current with various components; to slow it down or amplify it.
After making sure the grounding is in place, they discover more complex but important components that have changed the world and taken us into the digital age, like transistors.
While having fun and building a multitude of circuits they learn to follow reasonably complex schematic diagrams.
INCLUDED IN THE COURSE:
Understanding Electricity, protons and electrons
Current, voltage, resistance and Ohm's Law
Series and parallel
Transistors and amplifying current
Conductivity and Insulation
