Successes and challenges galore in Quirky Contraptions.
Now that the students have taken their toys apart and learned what the parts are (and how to get them working again), the students have begun building their quirky contraptions! They were SOOOOOO ready!!!!
One of the Quirky Contraptions groups really wanted to make LED headbands using their newfound knowledge of parallel circuits. So… we decided to have a bit of a Project Runway-esque showdown!
Fun with conductors, insulators, multimeters, resistors, potentiometers, LED’s, buzzers, motors, and propellors — with the occasional smoking short circuit thrown in for extra excitement!
