S*T*E*M* Projects ( Science, Technology, Engineering and Math )
These are some projects that I’ve been doing with my HOMESCHOOL GROUPS over the years and NOW I offer them to EVERYONE! (Each program is 1 hour long. )
SIMPLE MOTORS – We experiment with copper wire, magnets and batteries to create simple motors that SPIN. Make your own spinning flag and experiment with a BATTERY POWERED home-made DRILL using a WOOD SCREW and your simple motor. ALL MATERIALS ARE INCLUDED.
BUILD AN ELECTROMAGNET – Build your own electromagnet using copper wire, electrical tape, a nail and a battery. Powerful enough to pick up a string of paperclips or thumb-tacks, but NOT strong enough for CARS! We will also experiment using in-class discussion on how to make the electromagnet EVEN MORE POWERFUL! ALL MATERIALS ARE INCLUDED.
ALTOIDS FLASHLIGHT – You get it ALL…An ALTOIDS candy tin, switch, batteries and battery holder, wire, screws and a VERY powerful LED bulb to make your OWN SUPER-COOL SPY-TYPE ALTOIDS FLASHLIGHT ! All step by step instructions and simple tools are included along with ALL MATERIALS.
***PLEASE NOTE*** As ALL materials are included with these programs, there is an extra fee attached. In addition to the regular PROGRAM FEE, there will also be a nominal fee of $3 PER STUDENT PER PROJECT attached to these STEM programs. Please inquire for more details.
