Summer Science: A Teacher's Handbook for a Summertime Program in Elementary Electricity.
McVoy, K. W.
This publication was designed to serve as a teacher's handbook for a four week "shop" adventure in elementary electricity for 12- or 13-year-old boys who would ordinarily not take an interest in electrical things. These projects could easily be adapted to aid any elementary physics treatment of electronics. Projects were designed to meet two main conditions: (1) to operate from D-cells or other safe, low-voltage sources, and (2) to be inexpensive enough (usually under $2.00 apiece) that they can be taken home for further play and investigation. Projects involve students in such aspects of electronics as magnets, electrostatics, circuits, electromagnets, electric motors, sound, and optics. Those projects were designed to be done usually one each five hour day but could be worked on in one or two hour lab sessions. Equipment and supplies lists are also included, along with pictures of the projects, teaching suggestions, suppliers list, and construction procedures. (MR)
