  Description Experience real and virtual lab activities covering basic electricity and magnetism from simple circuits to motors and speakers. We will discuss ways to engage as well as challenge each student so that they learn no matter their age or ability level. We will also explore how activities can be vertically aligned, connecting content across grades. You will leave with materials and activities, energized and ready to spark the joy of discovery in your students. Share ideas, experiences, and aspirations as we explore ways to enhance the excitement of learning. No prior knowledge of electricity and magnetism is assumed. These activities have been used successfully in elementary classrooms to college engineering courses.
