Madlab Electronics

Solder circuits and apply your knowledge of electricity
Fizzics Education BUTTON

Make your own electronic circuit to keep!
Using soldering irons and appropriate safety equipment your school classroom becomes a hive of activity as students construct their own electronic device of real electrical components.

Whilst constructing circuits your students will learn about capacitors, resistors, diodes and more as well as how electronic circuit boards are manufactured in the real world.
The kits have been designed by Madlab and have been used by the Edinburgh Science Festival.

Australian National Curriculum Mapping for all our science workshops & shows

Australian ACARA Content Outcomes:

  • Electrical circuits provide a means of transferring and transforming electricity (ACSSU097)
  • Energy from a variety of sources can be used to generate electricity (ACSSU219)
  • Scientific understanding of current electricity has resulted in technological developments designed to improve the efficiency in generation and use of electricity (PW3)
  • Energy transfer through different mediums can be explained using wave and particle models (ACSSU182)
  • Collaboratively and individually plan and conduct a range of investigation types, including fieldwork and experiments, ensuring safety and ethical guidelines are followed (ACSIS125)

NSW Science Syllabus Content

A student:
  • applies models, theories and laws to explain situations involving energy, force and motion SC5-10PW
  • discusses how scientific understanding and technological developments have contributed to finding solutions to problems involving energy transfers and transformations SC4-11PW
  • explains how scientific understanding about energy conservation, transfers and transformations is applied in systems SC5-11PW

Scientific understanding of current electricity has resulted in technological developments designed to improve the efficiency in generation and use of electricity.

  • describe voltage, current and resistance in terms of energy applied, carried and dissipated
  • describe qualitatively the relationship between voltage, resistance and current
  • compare the characteristics and applications of series and parallel electrical circuits
  • outline recent examples where scientific or technological developments have involved specialist teams from different branches of science, engineering and technology, eg low-emissions electricity generation and reduction in atmospheric pollution

For schools outside of metropolitan areas please contact us to discuss how this workshop can visit your school as part of a regional visit.

We don't charge per student as we know that this causes an additional administrative load on your school office. Most schools tend to fill the science workshops & shows based on our recommended maximum number of students. If you have any questions please contact us.
