If you prefer to have a quieter experience, we suggest visiting after 12:00 pm, and plan to attend our 1:00 pm tour. Are there other workshops at UBC I can attend? Join our friends at the Department of Physics and Astronomy for a workshop with a focus on introducing circuits to students by playing and making. This workshop will cover topics of circuits, voltage, current, and resistance that are part of the BC Grade 9 Science Curriculum, but all teachers who are interested in learning basic electronics are welcome, as some activities would be of interest and appropriate for Grade 4-7 students. Visit the event page for registration fees and information.
