Last week, during their visits to the Centenary Library, the year 6 students’ scientific minds were challenged into making Squishy Circuits.
Our budding scientists used power packs, play dough, laminating strips, fans, buzzers and LED lights to create not only working circuits, but also some wonderfully artistic creations. Students learned 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.
