Light-up Bugs STEM Activity for Kids
Emma, Johnny, and Lily made these light-up bugs at one of our science coop classes. Actually, I mostly made them, but they helped quite enthusiastically. There’s a C battery and some wire under all the bug trappings, and the light you see is a flashlight lighbulb. Everything is held together with a little sticky tack. Lily’s bug only gets to have one eye, per Lily’s adamant opinion. Click through this link to learn how to make these light-up bugs.
I don’t know how much learning my kids will retain from this activity, but they think their bugs are super cool!
