If you use an Electric Circuits Kit, there is also an available presentation entitled, “Zappsville”, an electrical safety demonstration featuring a scale model neighborhood. With pops and flashes, this engaging demonstration shows the outdoor electrical hazards associated with poles and high voltage lines. The presentation includes a short electrical demonstration that investigates how we generate electricity. The presentation typically takes 30-45 minutes and dovetails nicely with the Electric circuit science kit. Call 541-685-7158 to schedule your presentation with (TBD)
If you use the Magnets and Motors kit at 5th grade, your students may explore the wonders of magnets through great demonstrations.
