They may be fundamental forces, but Electricity and Magnetism are just plain fun!  Whether you’re a budding young radio head or a curious camper that loves magnets, join us for a week of engaging activities.

During It’s Magnetic!, children will: 

  • Become a “maker”, starting with small projects that build up to one culminating project to take home
  • Work with circuits through fun hands-on games and activities
  • Discover magnets and the way they interact with the world around us
  • Experience the foundations of modern technology by building basic components from the ground up
  • Construct electromagnets, paper speakers, simple capacitors and more
  • Combine everything they’ve made to create a simplified working radio
