As part of National Engineer's
week Intel volunteers ran a STEM event for fourth graders at Gold Ridge
Elementary to learn fun ways to generate electricity.
Intel volunteers set up nine stations
with Makey Makey kits for students to learn about generating electricity.
At stations students played
Scratch Pacman, played a piano with fruit, and at the conductive station they
made a cat meow on a computer through passing electricity.
Students learned that conductors
pass an electricity charge and insulators don't, figuring out which items were
conductors and which were insulators was part of the learning process.
