This summer camp theme explores POWER! See part one for kinetic energy and more.
|Related concepts and machines:
|From TeacherGeek. Build a turbine and measure the power generated.
|Measurement, waterwheel, lineshaft system
|From Makerspaces.com. 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)
|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).
