Electric Circuits by Dr. Arash Mahyari, Research Scientist, IHMC

March 7, 2020

In March our Science Saturday topic was “Electric Circuits”. The presentation was led by Arash Mahyari. Hands-on activities involved serial circuits and a variety of circuit elements - batteries, lights, fans, buzzers, switches, etc. The 5th and 6th graders also experimented with parallel circuits. One group displayed their inventive nature and made a simple electric vehicle. Student volunteers from North Marion and Vanguard High Schools assisted. Special sponsor Ocala Electric Utility provided gift bags with informative materials and cool swag. Electric circuits was fun!
