Ahoy Alpha Team and Welcome to the Learning Beach!

Your mission today is to create a lesson on breadboards.  I have already started for you. In this story, Ohmie returns from a fishing trip and needs to create a circuit.  Follow the story below and at the end of the page, you can submit your own story.  By submitting your story, you allow me to use your story, or include some parts of it for the first lesson of the Adventures of PodPi.  And, if you allow me, I will you credit your ideas on the web page for other kids to see (just your first name).

Thank you.

Professor Pi

It all started with a canoe in the ocean.  The canoe's name is 10K.

Frame 1

Frame 1

The canoe was headed towards the Island of PodPi.

We can sort of see that he is heading towards the Learning Beach.

Frame 2

Frame 2

Ohmie is seen rowing a large canoe.  His canoe is made out of a large resistor.  The stripes on the canoe are the color of the 10K resistor.

Frame 3

Frame 3

Ohmie secures his canoe.  "What a great catch today!" he exclaims.

Frame 4

Frame 4

 "Let's make a circuit today!"

Ohmie shows what he caught today.  Resistors, LEDs and colorful wires.

Frame 5

Frame 5

"First I need a breadboard.  What about this white one to start with?"

The main goal of this lesson is to learn how to make prototypes on breadboards.

Frame 6

Frame 6

Ohmie is heading towards the Learning Hut

Frame 7

Frame 7

Ohmie opens the door to the Learning Hut.  A sign says "World of Knowledge"

Frame 8

Frame 8

As he enters, we discover the inside of the learning Hut.  There is a blackboard with Ohm's law, a door to another room and a bookshelf with books on many subjects.

Frame 9

Frame 9

Ohmie drops all the components on the table.

Frame 10

Frame 10

Ohmie checks out the books on the shelves

Frame 11

Frame 11

and picks up a book called "Circuits"

Frame 12

Frame 12

Ohmie opens the book.  He turns the pages and finds a page with the history of breadboarding.

There is a small icon in the left corner.  When kids click this icon, the page of the book will appear with all the details about how breadboards were used in the early days of electricity.

Frame 13

Frame 13

Ohmie then turns the page to today's circuits

There is a small icon on the right.  When kids click this icon, the page of the book will appear with details on how today's breadboards work.

Frame 14

Frame 14

Now it is your turn to finish the story.  The main goal of this story is to have the kids use the breadboard to create a circuit with resistors and LEDs.  Here is the fun part.  You can add frames in the story with web page components that can interact with the circuit.  For example, once the circuit is made, Ohmie could have access to checkboxes or toggle switches on the screen to turn the LED on and off.  Oh... one last thing, you can also add frames above or add elements to the story.  

Have fun and I'm looking forward to your ideas.
