Did you know that the brainpower inside your favorite smart device now houses over a billion transistors? These transistors are the fundamental building blocks of modern electronic devices. Small size yet more functionality has driven the technology roadmaps for electronics. In this program participants explore the world of hardware ...electrical and electronic circuits. Participants learn basic concepts of an electric current, voltage, conduction, resistance while building circuits to do simple tasks like light a bulb, power a fan, make a functioning radio. From there they will look into electronics with transistors and integrated circuits. Note: Program is specifically designed for young students. No soldering! Circuit designs use regular 1.5V batteries.
