OH WOW! helps children understand circuitry

Local News

The OH WOW! The Roger & Gloria Jones Children’s Center for Science & Technology is teaching children some unique lessons through a hands-on event on Saturday.

The center held its first Hack It event, which focused on electricity and circuitry. 

The kids put together a few circuits as they learned about them. Volunteers at the museum say understanding circuits is important for children because of how much we use them in our everyday lives.

“Inside our phones is basically a super complex version of this, so even if I touched a button on this side, it’s basically the same thing as touching this sensor,” said volunteer Jane Casto.

Volunteers said the center holds these Hack It events at least once a month. 

The next one will be held on Feb. 23. Children will have the chance to better understand biology.
