Today students finished disassembling their toys and began tinkering with electricity in earnest. They began learning about circuits with their Circuit Stickers sketchbook, and quickly advanced to making their own circuits and sketches to go with their circuits. There were many groans of frustration, but even more screams of delight. Tomorrow we’ll work more with traditional wires and circuits, and begin exploring how to re-wire the toys we disassembled earlier in the project!
