2012 Summer Program

The circus is about energy: clever ways to spin, balance, flip, swing and leap. Build a small circus that two batteries will bring to life. Power motors, magnets, propellers and lights with circus circuits that are designed for young experimenters. Costume and color your performers with paint, tissue, glitter and sequins. Construct, connect and coach your characters. Because, in engineering, as in the circus, practice is essential.

The 6th in our First Circuits series.
