Focus on Communications Engineering
How often do you communicate with someone else during the day? How many different tools do you use to communicate?
Explore all the different ways humans, animals, and computers communicate with one another. Did you know spiders could send messages in their webs long before websites existed? Kids will have a chance to recreate that. Kids will also study electronic devices that allow them to communicate, as well as how people communicated over long-distance before phones were invented. They’ll even build a flashlight to send messages, using a cryptic code. To do this, we’ll learn about codes that people have used over the years to keep their messages private and how computer engineers still use secret codes today to encode messages. Students will also engineer a secret safe to keep all of their messages and belongings secure.
In this module, kids will discover how important communication is to engineering the life of a Secret Agent.
