This is a 5 days Track focus on learning basic circuits theory and fundamentals in addition to Micro-controllers ( parts and operation ). Also we will make some applications using the micro-controller and the participant will be asked to build their own project at the fifth day.
Day 1 : Basic Circuits
Day 2 : Computer and Micro-controller
Day 3 : Basic Component
Day 4 : Advanced Component
Day 5 : Project
In this section we will start by a wondering question to grab the attention of the kids and also get them involve to interact.
1- What do you know about electricity also can we live without it?
2- Usually kids says it power the stuff and it’s all around us.
3- We want the kids to understand that electricity is like water it flows in paths, but we call the particles “Charges”
4- We will introduce the scientific name of each the plug and the battery.
5- Also we will list some examples for devices uses DC and AC together.
In this section we will introduce the circuit and why we call it a circuit.
1- Circuit : is a path for the charges to flow from point to point and it’s a closed one.
2- Circuits look like a circle as if we start from a certain point we will end at the same point again, This why we call it a circuit.
3- In circuits we have two different state opened circuits and closed circuits.
4- Closed circuits : forms a complete loop with no cuts.
5- Opened circuits : the path is not complete due to one of the wires is not connected or one of the component is corrupt.
We will talk about what make the circuit a circuit, and we will discuss each one briefly.
1- Circuits do consist of 3 main parts: “Voltage Source, Conductive paths, and Loads”.
2- Voltage source: is the component that provide power to the circuit “Battery”
