Science Workshop: Exploring Electromagnetism with Simple Materials
July 20 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm$30.00
This workshop presents a series of activities intended to teach the fundamental concepts of electromagnetism. Participants will experience hands-on activities focusing on magnetic polarity, magnetic fields induced by electric currents and their effects on magnetic compasses, and much more! As participants engage with the activities they will learn important steps in the preparation of the activities for different grades and will also learn and discuss facilitation strategies ideal for certain learners. This workshop is a must for those curious about electrical or magnetic phenomena and for those who are looking to add more pizzazz to their science teaching! This workshop earns participants 3 training hours that can be applied towards continuing education units (CEUs) issued through San Jose State University.
