7th Grade TechDuring the first cycle we will be exploring Electricity and Circuits. We will learn what electricity is, and the basic parts needed to make a circuit. Students will perform experiments to see the properties of metals and non-metals, and will construct parallel and series circuits. The rotation will conclude with students constructing their own custom designed "Electronic Game."The second cycle we will be looking at flight and it's associated forces. Students will first experiment with paper airplanes and learn how we create lift. Afterwards, they will construct Delta Dart Gliders and fine tuning their planes to achieve maximum flight time. 7th Graders can also look forward to constructing rockets which we will launch at the end of the year.
