Electricity Show and Circuits workshops in Fourth Grade

electricityOn November 1, fourth graders were invited to participate in the Electricity Show presented by Tom Wahle of Techsploration and funded courtesy of HOP. The students saw a demonstration of an electric charge, learned how to create an electric circuit and acted as electrons during electric attraction / repulsion. They learned how to build a battery with household materials and stay safe during lightning and around electrical outlets. Ask your child about the experiments they saw (Tesla Coil and Van de Graaff generator).

Following the Electricity Show, fourth grade classes participated in the hands on Circuits Workshop with Mr. Wahle. The students worked with conductors / insulators, open / closed circuits, and electromagnets. A great time of exploration and learning was had by all!
