Throughout history, Electrical Engineering jobs have played a huge role in the development of society. From Thomas Edison’s invention of the electric light bulb to Philo T. Farnsworth’s invention of television, pioneers in Electrical Engineering have largely shaped how we live today. Did you Know that the Dynamo was invented in 1831, light bulb in 1878, electric motor in 1887, television in 1928, radar in 1930s, computers in 1941, transistor in 1947, microprocessor in 1968, satellites in 1979, internet protocol in 1981, and wifi in 2000. Such a great legacy of mankind!
Electrical and Electronics engineers work at the forefront of practical technology, improving and creating a variety of devices and systems we use every day. From solar-energy systems to mobile phones, they innovate to meet society’s communication, technological and energy needs. Since the work of these great pioneers, the field of electrical engineering has grown tremendously, expanding into several specialized categories. These include power generation and transmission navigation systems, motors, batteries, control systems and more.
In this Program, students explore electricity and various ways it can be generated and used. The flow through parallel and series circuits and building electromagnets will teach kids this fundamental Engineering skill. Students will learn about electrical circuits (series and parallel), LED lights, conductors, resistors, switches, diodes, amplifiers, IR control, motion sensing. Students will explore how current travels from the source to the end where multiple objectives can be achieved. Our course requires taking notes and observations that result in retention of key scientific concepts. Students will utilize this knowledge of energy transfer to build an electric device for creative satisfaction. Simplistic actions like turning on the lights or charging a tablet will never be the same again.
This Program is Only offered through our amazing Partners as a Classroom Program or After-School enrichment.
