2013 Summer Program

Insects are marvels of design. Because there are so many types of insects, they have developed many and unusual tools to communicate, travel, and survive. Study insects, study electricity, study design. Make insects that walk, that fly, that swim. make insects that chirp, that flash, that make scents. make insects that follow magnetic fields to find their way. make insects that defend or attack. Insects suggest design challenges. You'll learn simple circuits to experiment with. And if they don't work perfectly, you'll learn to debug them. The 7th in our First Circuits series.
