tinkering with the kids

This Easter weekends the weather was really crap, so we stayed home. We had lots of time to spend with the kids, and we all enjoyed that. The boys are still a bit too young for the projects I usually do, but we just did our first electronics lession.. Even if Levin didn’t fully understand how a photon derails an electron in the silicon of the solar cell, he still liked to see how the prop blew more air when he better aligned the cell to the sun.

What you need is just a pack of match sticks, some glue, a small solar cell and a tail boom of a broken RC helicopter.

Levin also created a Triceratops. You see it on the photos, that’s the dinosaur with the three horns.
