Description

ScienceWiz Inventions

 

Sciencewiz Inventions : Inventions received a rave review from the Women’s Society of the IEEE after using it for camp programs for elementary school students. The IEEE’s review boasted, “The projects actually WORK….even for large groups where individualized attention is not possible.”

 

Step-by-step, highly visual instructions lead a child successfully through each invention.

 

Full color illustrations present central scientific concepts.

 

Which allow children to discover the “why” as well as the “how”.

 

The use of everyday materials demystifies the workings of common electronic components.

 

The animations that compliment the book on the website deepen and extend comprehension.

 

Although designed for 8 years old, Inventions has an extraordinary history and following.

 

It has been used at MIT to mentor high school students in physics.

 

It has been used at U.C. Berkeley to mentor women in science.

 

It has been used similarly at other institutions including the Fermi Lab and the University of Texas at Austin.

 

It was rumored that a number of physicists at U.C. Berkeley were spinning the handmade motors on their desks competing to see which motor would spin the fastest!

 

The Inventions kit from ScienceWiz is the perfect purchase for any curious child looking to explore the reasons for how and why things work. Children will be able to put their minds and hands to work as they relish projects that include building a spinning motor, a clicking telegraph, a working radio and a light flashing generator. As this kit aims to help children understand the mechanics behind how things work, children will learn about central scientific concepts as well as learn how to question how and why things work the way they do. Included is a 40-page booklet full of a huge amount of useful information, as well as 3D illustrations to help guide you through the learning journey!
