Computer chips are everywhere--powering the Internet, controlling cars, automating factories, enhancing cell phones, and enriching home entertainment. A new program at the Intel Museum helps children learn about computer chip science while completing fun, hands-on activities during a free summer drop-in program. Participants will decode a message, explore the inside of a laptop, make a musical greeting card, and more.

Each week of a four-week session offers a different theme:

* Code and Conductivity--Learn how computers "talk" while decoding a secret message written in binary code, then test your knowledge by programming a robot.
* Sensational Circuits--Build working circuits and discover that a computer chip the size of a fingernail contains millions of circuits.
* 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.

Each program lasts about 45 minutes. Participants can drop in at the museum on Tuesday or Thursday between 10 am to 5 pm on any of the program dates.

Aug. 7-30
Code and Conductivity: Aug. 7 or 9
Sensational Circuits: Aug. 14 or 16
Keeping It Clean: Aug. 21 or 23
Fabulous Fab: Aug. 28 or 30

Each program includes guided and self-paced activities. All participants must be accompanied by an adult who remains in the museum during the program.

Attend one program each week in July or August and receive a prize!
