Students investigate measurement and the properties of electricity and the role of conductors and insulators in electronic circuits through a series of investigations and experiments.
Makey Makey is available through the following program types. Select a program type to view more information.
On-Site at Quantum Victoria
Students will conduct experiments to explore measurement and electrical circuit concepts through:
measuring the mass and volume of substances needed to make playdough
conductors and insulators
a Makey Makey kit
An extension module complementing the onsite program is available for completion upon your return back to school. This module consists of a student workbook and teacher resource book with solutions.
This module offers explores electricity including:
renewable and non-renewable sources of electricity
transportation of electricity
The module enables students to relate to real world usage of familiar electrical circuits and appliances/devices using multiple activities.
Asynchronous (Self Delivery)
Students undertake activities with a focus on the following key concepts:
the safety associated with electricity and electrical circuits.
conductors and insulator
measurement (mass and volume)
This module consists of a student workbook and accompanying teacher resource book with solutions.
