How does an electrical circuit work?Electricity can be found everywhere you look. Electrical circuits are used to power light bulbs, televisions, computers, and more! Circuits are a simple, fascinating way to better understand building and engineering. To create a simple circuit, you will need a battery, wire, and a light.
This week’s STEAM Star is Leah Welker, an 8th grader at Quincy Junior High School. She is trying out one of most popular STEAM projects, salt painting. Thank you Leah for creating this fun activity for us!
This fun STEAM project from busymommedia.com uses the power of salt absorption to create a unique work of art. In the process of creating a salt painting, you’ll see first hand how salt effectively absorbs moisture from the environment.
Before starting the project, discuss how salt is used not just to favor our food but also prevents food from spoiling. Salt absorbs moisture from its surroundings helping to inhibit the growth of bacteria in foods. With that in mind, observe how quickly and effectively salt absorbs the watercolors.
