Explore electricity and magnetism!

This engaging 1 hour workshop allows your children to investigate electricity circuits and magnetism activities.

Find out the difference between series and parallel circuits, how do magnets work and how are these linked together? See 100,000 volts discharged in a flash and conduct electricity through the palm of your hand - a 'hair raising' experience! Predict the movement of magnets based on their polarity. What different types of circuits are there? Race super magnets through conductors and more...

The workshop covers static and current electricity, magnetic repulsion and attraction, electromagnetism, simple circuits and renewable energies.

Available as a holiday program within Australia or as a video conference to any vacation center around the globe!
