Computer chips are everywhere-powering the Internet, controlling cars, automating factories, enhancing cell phones, and enriching home entertainment.
A free program at the Intel Museum helps children learn about computer chip science while completing fun, hands-on activities. Participants will decode a secret message, explore the inside of a laptop, make a musical greeting card, and more.
Four different themes:
* Code and Conductivity--Learn how computers "talk" in code, and test the conductivity of different materials to learn about semiconductors.
* Sensational Circuits--Explore the inside of a laptop computer and then build a musical greeting card using the Intel-Powered Classmate PC.
* Keeping It Clean--Find out why tiny dust particles are not welcome in a fabrication facility, and conduct an experiment to count particles in the air.
* Fabulous Fabs--Explore the magic of UV light while completing hands-on activities.
Each program lasts about 45 minutes. Participants can drop in at the museum on Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday between 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. on any of the program dates. Reservations not required.
