Class Experience

Electricity has been a big party of my life. As a teenager I was building computer circuits, robots, and discrete electric devices. I worked after school in my Dad's radio shack store repairing everything from radios to toasters to TV's.  Through the decades I held on and developed this understanding through hands on experience as well as formal courses.

Perhaps more importantly I have a skill for explaining complex concepts in a simple easy to understand manner and a passion for plain true practical understanding to the next generation. Learning should be deep and fun!
We have partnered with Perfect Package, to provide a full package with all the necessary materials for this class. They stock all items and ship on time. It is highly recommended to purchase the package. Here is the link: Additional Materials required for session experiments: (not included in the kit above) Session 1: A collection of batteries, preferably some old and some new Session 2: A cup of clean water Some table salt Session 3: A piece of thick paper No 2. pencil (might need a sharpener) All other items are provided by Perfect Package, see link above
50 minutes per week in class, and maybe some time outside of class.
The experiments in this set of classes are fairly easy for young children, however, please gauge whether it is appropriate for an adult to be present in case the child has difficulty. Sometimes in the group setting, an individual child can feel overwhelmed with simple problems and miss out on a successful experience. I leave it to you as parent to gauge the child's capability to complete the experiments successfully.
