Fun with Electricity by Dr. Matt Johnson, IHMC

January 26, 2019

The topic of January Science Saturday was "Fun with Electricity", presented by Dr. Matt Johnson, Research Scientist at IHMC. Students in grades 3 and 4 attended at 9 am; 5th and 6th graders attended at 11. The students learned the basics of electricity and circuits through hands on experimentation. The day included learning about voltage, current and resistance by experimenting with lights, motors, buzzers, switches, and potentiometers. The kids worked in teams to build various series and parallel circuits. The generosity of our sponsors makes it possible for IHMC to offer these events free of charge to all attendees.
