Engineer in Residence Workshop: LED Holiday Card

Light up the holidays as you design and make a greeting card that illuminates an LED light by converting chemical energy to radiant energy. Explore how a simple circuit works while making your own light-up card to brighten your holidays.

Traditionally, we harness the chemical energy found in fossil fuels and use technological devices to convert it to electrical energy. This electrical energy is then easily transferred over long distances and used in devices in our homes and businesses. As our technological capabilities continue to evolve, so too does the creativity of engineers in designing electrical circuits and grids to power our society. In this engineering challenge, we will use our own creativity to design a device that converts chemical energy to radiant energy while learning about electrical flow, switches and currents.

Join Discovery Place educators and our Engineer in Residence for this FREE workshop that provides a hands-on way to celebrate the holidays.
