Are you curious about electricity and how it powers our world? Do you wonder where the force of a magnet comes from and how strong it can be in our universe? The Summer Institute for the Gifted (SIG) offers gifted, creative, and academically talented students ages 7-8 a course designed to explore answers to these intriguing questions. In Electricity and Magnetism: A Powerful Pair, students explore how the worlds of electricity and magnetism collide to help us perform daily activities.
Plug into the world of electromagnetism, a type of physical interaction that occurs between electrically charged particles. Why is electromagnetic force created when you rub a balloon on your hair? Learn about this force and much more as your curiosity is “pulled” toward experiments and activities surrounding electricity and magnetism that “charge up” our lives.
