Power and Energy, Part 2

Power and Energy, Part 2

Why does good wiring matter?

This summer camp theme explores POWER! See part one for kinetic energy and more.

Project: Description: Related concepts and machines:
Wind Power From TeacherGeek.  Build a turbine and measure the power generated. Measurement, waterwheel, lineshaft system
Paper Circuitry From  This set of directions is very clear.  If you use LEDs with ‘long legs,’ you can do a quick win by testing your light and battery together. Once students understand the concepts they can design and experiment with multiple lights and making a switch. Lineshaft system, electric machines (Cone Automatic for example)
Conductive Piano From Makey Makey.  Now that we can build circuits, let’s use them to Do Stuff (like play a piano.) Conductivity, design, programming, sensors, Input & Output

We collected these free resources online, and combined they make about one day’s worth of activities (three projects, cleanup, lunch, and breaks).
