Creative Conductors is an exciting workshop that covers energy conduction, circuits and the design process - with a creative twist.
Students will use a Makey Makey - a the kit that 'turns the world into a controller' - to combine their knowledge of energy concepts with engineering thinking. The workshop explores conductors and insulators, before moving on to designing and creating a product to a brief, and then energising it! The workshop:
- is facilitated by a STEM expert
- explores concepts in physics, design and technology, and engineering
- comes with all the required kit.
Top tip: If students want to bring a piece of fruit or veg from home, they’ll get to use it as part of the workshop!
Two groups of a maximum number of 30 pupils can take part in the workshops. The workshop content is adjusted appropriately for year 5, 6, 7 and 8 students.
We ask that you book one room for a full day, with a computer/laptop for each student team of four or five students. There also needs to be table space for teams to build their creations, as well as access to a sink to help with cleaning up.
We send a photographer to some workshops, so we need consent forms to be completed both for photography and visitors. A photography form can be supplied. Please let us know if you would like to fully opt out.
