ClassQuizboards (Electrical Engineering) Age 9+. Hands-on outreach class at the MIT Edgerton Center. We need a Minimum of 12 students and a maximum of 24 for this class.

Description: In this activity, students are introduced to the concepts of open and closed circuits and electrical components such as wire, resistors, LED’s and a battery so that they can build their very own quizboard. After designing the quiz questions themselves, students learn how to cut and strip wire and make electronic connections. Then, each student solders their electrical connections together. To complete the activity, students wire the board together and take their completed Quizboard home.

Materials Needed: You will find the file for the activity that participants need to complete beforehand in the files section marked quizboards. here  It shouldn’t take more than a few minutes to complete.

Age: This activity is appropriate for children 9 and up (Any children under the age of 9 who attend will not be allowed to participate in soldering due to its dangerous nature). Children must be able to function in the classroom independently. The size of the classroom does not allow for parents to remain in the room during class. You are, however,  welcome to wait at cafe 4 down the the hall. Although some parents prefer to wait outside the classroom in the hall, and I completely understand the need to be immediately available for your children, noise has been a concern in the past. I ask that if you feel you need to wait close by you please take into consideration the other classrooms in the school. Also there are always plenty of friendly interns available to help the kids through the activities.

Travel Tips: Visitor parking in the MIT-Kresge parking lot is limited. Permits can be purchased for $26.00 by completing and submitting the PDF form at least five days in advance. The other MIT Visitors lots rates are varied. Also available is metered parking which is obviously first come first serve. I have been told that you will be ticketed if you park at a meter for more than two hours, after two hours you need to change spaces.
