Thursday: The Phone Hack
Want to understand how something works? Take it apart.
We will take apart old handsets of analog telephones. (Ask your grandparents about them. Those phones had dials! You will discover they work simply and are little changed from Alexander Graham Bell and Thomas Edison's time. Then add a few wires and a battery and talk to yourself or other people. Discover surprising and fun experiments.
