How do we produce electricity? What is the connection between electricity and magnetism? This workshop will focus on how electricity is produced using demonstrations showing Faraday's Law - moving magnetic fields can produce electricity in conductors and moving electrons (electricity) produce magnetic fields. It will also give teachers time to work through a whole series of paper circuits which show how series and parallel circuits work. Some of the circuits also show the nature of science and help teachers engage students using the science practices. There is also a light show circuit which can be used to show the REAL primary colors of light.

This workshop is part of the STEMAZing Workshop Series. The STEMAZing Project’s philosophy on teacher professional development is simple: It must be hands-on and engaging – putting the educators in the seat of the students to experience STEM lessons firsthand. It must provide the educators with the equipment and supplies they need to implement the lessons and activities in their classrooms the next day if they choose. It must be facilitated by master educators who have themselves been in the classroom.
