The Center for Gifted has offered exciting, educational classes for ages K-12th since 1983. Please join us in Elmhurst on Saturday May 15th from 12pm-1:30pm for Deconstruction Zone!
Come discover the inner workings of your favorite things and investigate how they were built, by taking them apart. From a variety of electronic devices we'll have on hand--from simple appliances to computers and equipment--choose one or two to take on for the afternoon. Under the excellent tutelage of our technical expert, Robin Kiamco,open up a device and dive in. As you observe the parts and pieces, can you identify their specific functions? As you carefully detach and remove them, can you pinpoint the critical
connections that make your machine tick? You'll be amazed at the perspective and keener grasp of engineering gained by this simple, yet as-complex-as-you-wish-to-make it, process still utilized today in advanced technology.
Class is for 4th-12th graders. Please see website for application form and more classes available through out the year-www.thecenterforgifted.org
