Dynamics:  the study of movement in physics:  We build obstacle courses to investigate the motion of bodies under the action of forces, e.g. slopes at different angels, a Newton’s cradle and 360 degree loops.  Tell a friend.

During this 3-day workshop, we will be building electric motors, electrochemical cells and learn how to wire NO and NC switches. The purpose of these workshops are to open up the beauty of Science and Technology and
to give students practical support re the school curriculum.

Dec 10: How to build an electric motor. By building this model, we discover that electrical energy converts into mechanical energy, and that electricity and magnetism are closely related.

Dec 12: What is electricity and can I generate it myself? Build an electrochemical cell and discover that electrical energy can be generated from a chemical reaction!

Dec 14: Each time I open the refrigerator door to get a snack, a light on the inside turns on. How does that work? Find out what a NO (normally open) and NC (normally closed) switch is by learning how to wire these two switches. Tell a friend.
