Today we went to the California Science Center, where we go once a month for a homeschool day. Lots of homeschoolers gather there to be taught about different elements in science such as: electricity, air pressure, rockets and roller coasters. After we do experiments we usually see an IMAX movie. Today we experiemented with electricity and magnets. In the pictures above, Micayla is touching a Van de Graaff generator, I've created an LED bug, Allie and Nate are using a hand generator to create energy for their electromagnet, and in the last picture Allie made a spinner with a battery operated motor. We learned more about circuts and how energy can travel and move things; it was fun. If you'd like to join us for future science days in LA, check out this link:
Maybe we will see you there sometime!
