The Telephone Museum gives a glimpse into a technology that has changed rapidly. Students will interact with past telephone technology and compare their experiences to the technology of today, in-person or virtually.
Circuits, Connectivity, Communication (6th-8th): As a part of a tour of the interactive telephone museum, students will learn how to create their own circuit boards with this STEM programming. Students will have the opportunity to gain knowledge and hands-on experience with building a circuit to communicate with each other using Morse code.
Let’s Play with Circuits (K-5th): Younger students will get the opportunity to be introduced to circuitry through a more simplified STEM activity. After a tour through our interactive telephone museum, students will go through the different parts of a circuit and gain hands-on experience on how to create one using playdough. They will be able to troubleshoot and figure out how it all works to create fun, bright circuits.
What to do with an Idea (K-8th): After a tour through our interactive Telephone Museum students will sit down and read through the book “What to Do With an Idea” By Kobi Yamada. Students will then have the opportunity to design, sketch, and bring their own telephone ideas to life with playdough. Students will dive into using their imagination to create with their own ideas.
