What Will You Learn?
Let’s dive in to learn more about how circuits work! You’ll build a simple series circuit that lights up. Then you’ll make a conductivity tester and compare the electrical properties of different materials. Finally, you’ll learn about switches and add them to your circuit.
In this lesson, campers will be introduced to the basics of how circuits work. They’ll learn some simple terminology associated with circuits and build a series circuit. Campers will compare the electrical properties of different materials. Finally, they will learn about switches and add them to their circuit.
Introduce campers to what circuits are and how they work.
Introduce the idea that a circuit must be closed for electricity to flow.
Introduce what a switch is and how it works.
