Electromagnetism 2: Wireless Technology, Hands-on Circuits, Lemon Batteries & More!

Quantum Physics for Kids
Average rating:4.9Number of reviews:(1,191)
In this 4-week STEAM course, students explore how electromagnetism is used in wireless technology, electrical circuits, batteries and energy harvesting devices! (Homeschool / Afterschool)

Class Experience

US Grade 3 - 6
Learners will explore quantum physics theory and exciting practical applications. Details of each session's learning goals are listed below: 

Session 1, Wireless Technologies
Students will learn about:
- Early explorations and discoveries in wireless technologies using controlled electromagnetic radiation, like radio
- The quantum physics and engineering concepts behind how wireless technologies work
- Various forms of wireless communication technologies: radio, cell phones, satellite communications, Wifi
- New developments in wireless charging 

Session 2, Chemical Reactions & Battery Technologies
Students will learn about:
- Atoms and subatomic particles (protons, neutrons and electrons)
- How batteries work and how they were first invented
- Analysis of chemical reactions commonly used in batteries
- New battery technologies and how battery technologies are important for building a sustainable electricity power supply

Session 3, Hands-on Circuits with Squishy Circuits (Advanced Version)
Students will learn about:
- How to build a hands-on circuit with conductive dough and non-conductive dough (or other non-conductive/conductive elements)
- Concepts of resistance, voltage, and understanding the difference between parallel and serial circuits
- Introduction to Ohm's Law

Session 4, Energy Harvesting Devices - Piezoelectric Materials and the Thermoelectric Effect
Students will learn about:
- The quantum physics principles behind piezoelectric materials and the thermoelectric effect
- Intriguing inventions that utilize these 2 lesser-known ways of generating electricity to harvest "ambient" energy, generating electricity in a sustainable manner
We're dedicated to introducing young students to the amazing world of quantum physics, technological innovation and design! We've been offering STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math) classes and creating educational materials for students of all ages for over 15 years. We're excited to share this course content with more students through Outschool. 
Homework Offered
Assessments Offered
The instructor will assess learner progress through class discussions and a fun end-of-class quiz.
Grades Offered
0Session 1, Wireless Communication Technologies, from Radio to Wifi 
No supplies required, but students may bring wireless technology tools (radio, cell phone) for show-and-tell with the class. 

Session 2, Chemical Reactions & Battery Technologies
No supplies required, but students may bring household batteries to share with the class, and may optionally purchase a lemon battery kit to follow along with the instructor. To acquire a lemon battery kit like the instructor's demo kit, on Amazon search for "4M Kidzlabs Lemon Powered Clock." Other lemon battery kits can be substituted. 
(Note: A lemon is not included in the kit)

Session 3, Hands-on Circuits with Squishy Circuits 
Required Materials:
1 Squishy Circuits Lite Kit or Standard Kit
Squishy Circuits kits are available on Amazon (please search "Squishy Circuits" on Amazon to find them). Either a "Lite Kit" or a "Standard Kit" will work for this course. 
Session 3 uses a Squishy Circuits set (Lite Kit or Standard Kit) for safe hands-on circuit building exploration. It includes a specially-designed child-safe battery holder with electrical leads. The kit can be re-used many times, and the class includes instructions for ongoing circuit-building activities. Please note: the battery holder requires 4 AA batteries (not included).  
Note: The Standard Kit includes additional building materials: a container of non-conductive insulating dough, 3 dough colors, 25 LEDs and a piezoelectric buzzer. These extra materials are not required for the class, but will expand the creative options available for the student. 

Please order the Squishy Circuits Kit 1 week before class begins, so your child will have materials ready for the class. Students can also bring various metal and non-metal items found in their home to incorporate into their circuit designs, such as paperclips, pipe cleaners, screws, wires, paper, empty plastic containers, bubble wrap, styrofoam, etc. For easier clean-up, it is recommended that students use a piece of cardboard, paper or flat plastic (such as a plastic placemat) to build their circuits on. Student will also need a stable tabletop surface for building.

Session 4, Piezoelectric Materials and the Thermoelectric Effect
No supplies required, but if available in the household, students may bring piezoelectric products (light-up shoes, piezoelectric buzzers) for show-and-tell with the class.
