Children’s Workshop: Happy Wiring!

As you can see from the photos, all enjoyed the Children’s Workshop held in conjunction with the 2004 IEEE International Symposium on EMC in Santa Clara!
Kids of all ages are welcome to come build battery-powered gadgets according to their age level at next year’s 2005 IEEE International Symposium on EMC in Chicago. Kids will learn to make a basic circle circuit in several projects. Most of the material that we will be using can be found around your house or can be purchased from your local craft store. In this workshop, we guarantee that you and your kids will have fun, lots of laughs, and a great learning experience. Together we will work on troubleshooting techniques to make sure the connections in the circuit are not broken. We will ensure that the simplest to the most challenging projects run in just three mornings!
The last day of the workshop will be our contest morning for the most improved designs and the fastest running gadgets. Lots of prizes will be given away! Come join us in Chicago!

Some of the gadgets made during the Children’s Workshop in Santa Clara included these colorful characters.

The children concentrated and were very quiet as they worked. They appreciated the diverse program arranged by Gayla Burns.

Travis Flanagan from NAVAIR (far right) showed a lightning attachment demonstrator during one of the stops on the exhibit floor during the Children’s Workshop. Incidentally, students from North Dakota State University, under the tutelage of Dr. Robert “Bob” Nelson, made the demonstrator.

Fred Heather of NAVAIR (Naval Air Systems Command) in Patuxent River, Maryland participated in the Children’s Workshop by speaking to a group of future engineers about EMC.
