What Will You Learn?
Let’s jump in and put some circuits to work.
We’ll explore circuits and make two moving paper circuits — a race car with a vibrating offset motor and a vibrobot that uses a disc motor like the ones found in cell phones.
Campers will engage with circuits through experimentation. They’ll investigate forces and motion while using engineering skills to prototype a small race car and a vibrobot.
Introduce electricity as a way to power circuits that do work.
Introduce motors as potential loads for circuits.
Explore the physics of forces and motion as they apply to a simple vibrobot.
