LEVEL 1 Beginner Electronics
The first level is a fun fast moving level 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, amplify it, or perhaps pulse 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, capacitors etc.
While having fun and building a multitude of circuits they learn to follow reasonably complex schematic diagrams which prepares them for the more advanced Intricate Electronics course.
INCLUDED IN THE COURSE:
Understanding Electricity, protons and electrons
Current, voltage, resistance and Ohm's Law
Series and parallel
Transistors and amplifying current
Capacitancy and storing electrical charge
Frequency and Sound
Integrated Circuits, Inputs and Outputs
Transducers, speakers and microphones
Child must be at least 10 years old or currently in Grade 4
