Electronics for Kids; Project 1, Electric Light and Switch

project1armh Assalamu’alaikum,

Actually we did some electronics projects in 2012, but I decided to start it again from the beginning using another electronics kit. This kit is more complicated than the kit that we used before, it has 750 projects, yes, thats a lot. If you haven’t read our previous electronics projects please click here, here and here.

We started from the very basic of circuit, Project 1; Electric Light and Switch.
The objective from this project is to show how electricity is turned “ON” or OFF” with a switch. Continue reading

Science Project: Renewable Energy | Geothermal Energy Pt 1

geo 1Assalamu’alaikum,

Today we did a science project about Geothermal energy. First, I explained that we can use natural resources such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, waves and geothermal heat to produce energy known as renewable energy or green energy.

This is part 1 of our Geothermal energy experiments. What is Geothermal energy? Geothermal energy is an energy that is generated by earth’s heat. Geo means “earth” and thermal means “heat”. The heat inside the Earth is intense enough to melt rocks. Those molten rocks are known as magma. Because magma is less dense than the rocks surrounding it, it rises to the surface. Sometimes magma escapes through cracks in the Earth’s crust, erupting out of Continue reading
