Squishy Scientists

Last week during their visits to the Centenary Library the year six student’s scientific minds were challenged into making Squishy Circuits. Our budding scientist used power packs, playdough, laminating strips, fans, buzzers and LED lights  to create not only working circuits but also some wonderful creations. Students learnt the difference between a series and a parallel circuit and how to include a working switch all while making smiling light up food items, police cars and popular fictional characters.  In their second session they were given a set of challenges to create specific circuits which they approached with very inquiring minds. This was both a fun experience and a really great way of  using hands on learning to explore electricity and circuit creation.
