Join the Delta Children’s Museum (DCM) on Saturday, March 23rd in the main lobby of the Greenville Mall from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm for a hands on learning activity about electrical circuits. The activity is age appropriate for 8 through 12 year old students. The admission fee for the activity is $5.00 per person and guarantees the child a chair time of 25 minutes to sit, work, and build different types of electrical circuits. DCM board members will lead and assist the activity led by DCM President Reiner Kloth and co-chair Dr. Lee Engel.
The unique “snap-together” pieces in this electronic activity make it an exciting learning toll that is hard to put down. The student is gin a clear plastic grid and told to construct two different electronic projects using colored snap-together connectors and electronic chips including a touch-controlled lap, flashlight, musical doorbell and a mini whirlwind propeller. After completing the two projects, students with time remaining may also experiment with their own design to create even more.
The basic snap circuits include four integrated circuits: a photoresistor, switches, a motor and a speaker. Students will set up in front of a large stand up table board that not only has the instructions but also shows how to visually build the models. This snap circuit activity has won the Seal of Approval from the National Parenting Center. Every child attending “Electrical Snap Circuits” will receive a signed certificate of attendance and completion from DCM. This certificate can be taken back to school, as some teachers may be interested in offering extra credit for participating students. This activity is limited to 30 students. For additional information, please call Dr. Lee Engel at (662) 378-8645.
