After School Week 5

Circuit Messages

Girlstart's electrical engineers were at it again this week in Girlstart's After School program. Building on their knowledge of circuits, the girls talked about the difference between open and closed circuits. They designed a switch for their circuits using an index card, brads and a paperclip. This gave them the ability to open and close their circuit to turn the light bulb on and off.
