A pencil with a built in speaker that changes pitch based on resistance? Students will learn, in an interesting and unique way, how they can '˜map' different electrical devices to resistance in a circuit. Using this tool they will investigate the difference between conductors and insulators, why some things can carry electricity, why some things are resistant to it and how adding elements in a circuit changes its resistance. Among other things, the pencil allows students to create a hand drawn working piano, be challenged to play songs, and use their bodies as a real electric circuit. They will surely enjoy building this novel ohm meter themselves and using it for tests!.


Note: All lessons include a presentation and a hands on building period which they then use to perform various tests.

This is a take home project, each student will build and keep their own.

Note: This Program is for students in grades 6 and up
