Young children are explorers and observers and Tronix Team’s Lower Elementary aged projects are designed to help students understand the world around them.
Discover the wonders of engineering and technology by building an exciting, electric boat from scratch! Design the boat’s frame, install a motor, construct a propeller, and attach the power supply. The project is ideal for summertime and for locations that have access to a launch site for the final day! For students in Kindergarten through 5th grade.
For younger elementary students in grades 3 through 5, the Magnets & Motors workshop provides an exciting introduction to magnetism and electricity. Students build a water-based compass and get to take it home. They learn how a motor works through a series of educational demonstrations, and then build a small electric fan they get to keep. The culmination of the workshop is to create a “Purring Present” that combines what students learned about magnets and motors in one fun take-home project! For students in 1st through 3rd grade.
