How can you communicate during an emergency?
Communication and electricity are the lifeblood of technology as we know it. We've come a long way from smoke signals and from computers that take up an entire room! Join Jon as he connects these two concepts to the natural world with stories, songs, and demonstrations.
Using the overarching question of how to communicate during an emergency, students explore properties of communication, circuits, natural hazards, and engineering as they ask themselves:
"What would help my community stay connected during a time of need?"
What would it take to see through walls?
