ANSTO Electric Circuits Online Weekend Workshop
Age: 8 - 12 years (upper primary)
Time: 2 hrs
If you enjoy making things, and sometimes breaking things too, then this workshop is for you!
In this 2 hour (virtual) hands-on workshop you will learn about and make various electric circuits such as Morse code machines and burglar alarms. You’ll have a great time learning to make virtual electric circuits and code a simulated ‘BBC Micro:Bit’ to add extra features to your circuits using wires, motors and sensors, while learning basic coding concepts. We’ll bring rock, paper, scissors to digital life along with whatever crazy inventions your creative minds can think of!
