The 4th graders had a blast making paper circuits!
They watched a presentation about how electrons, conductors and batteries work to produce an electric current and how to harness the resulting energy. Then we watched a short video tutorial and a STUNNING inspirational video of Electronic Popables by Jie Qi before making our own simplified versions.
It was ELECTRIFYING!!!
Some were from to-be-colored templates…
and some, more daring, drew their own…
They made STUNNING illuminated mandalas!
