For a lot of people, the best way to learn things is by experimenting by themselves. This is true for both me and my kids. For me it is easier to understand something when I can feel, see, touch, hear, and smell it. It is also fun to do experiments at home with your kids. Here are my top 4 modern technology experiments for kids that you can do at home.
There are a lot of tutorials on how to create a stop-motion movie on the net which can easily be found with a search on Google. There are also a lot of stop motion apps that are free to download in the app stores. I used Mega Construx on my Android phone, which I found to be very easy to use when I and my son created the attached movie where he builds with Technic Lego. Check it out!
My son loves cars, so I created five questions about vehicles:
1. Which brand? The name is Latin and means I roll. *Volvo, 2. Which brand? The logo is a horse. *Ferrari, 3. Koenigsegg is the name of a cool sports car. In which country is it built? *Sweden, 4. Who is the founder of Tesla? *Elon Musk, 5. Which brand? The logo has four rings. *Audi.
